Default Replace front wheel hub or just bearing?

I need to replace a front wheel bearing on my car. I'm sure I can do it on my own, or take it to a shop to press out, but I'm sure it will be a pain with lots of swearing involved either way. Would I save myself some time and sanity if I purchased a front hub assembly that included a new wheel bearing?

I found these on eBay for about the same price as a new bearing:

Yes, I know a factory bearing is going to be better quality, but that isn't the question I am asking. Thanks for your help!

Take your spindle off and have a show press a new hub bearing in if u got the cash.
You could get a whole spindle from a junkyard and thrown it on if your strapped fr cash

I would let a shop press in the bearings. It's headache free. It wouldn't matter if you just purchased the combo as opposed to just the bearing. You would still need to press out and press in. Only reason I could see in replacing just the hub is if the knurl for studs were stripped in any way, or you have a broken stud(s). Reuse your hubs and just purchase OEM bearings. Would be a bitch if the aftermarket bearings wore prematurely and you would have to disassemble your knuckles again.

what he said ^

i have a thread about DIY front wheel bearings on here if you want to see what it takes. even if you can press them yourself, the inner race of the old bearing is seized on the hub in a way that you need something like this to get it free:

go to the shop if you don't want to buy a few hundred dollars in tools, especially if you don't have a press or an impact wrench.

EDIT: here's my thread http://www.honda-tech.com/showthread.php?t=2610118

Do not buy that hub/bearing from that ebay link. It's showing a rear wheel bearing/hub but listed as a Front. There's no reason to replace your front hub, unless it's bent or something. Just get the bearing.
