wheel bearings (hub style) ...how often ?

Hello all, 99 Camaro V6 owner here:
The car has 43K miles on it, and I'm told it needs both front wheel bearings ($100 each!) replaced.
Anyone else experience this ? I mean, if it were 100K miles, I wouldn't be
surprised...

The life span of the bearings is largely depends on where you drive.

True. 43k is a bit premature though....
OP: $100 each sound about right per part at list price level. Joe--ASE Certified Parts Specialist & 10th Ann.Club Tech Director '80 Carousel Red Turbo T/A, 27k orig. '79 "Y89" 400/4 speed 10th Ann.
