Front wheel hub assembly with bearings installed

Post by sadiehl » Tue Jun 12, 2018 9:48 am

Autozone sells a front wheel hub assembly with bearings already installed for a 2005 Outback ....does anyone know if this will fit a 2005 Subaru baja Turbo .... otherwise I will need to remove bearings and press in new ones. Seems to me they would be the same.

Unlikely. The Baja is based off the Gen3 Legacy platform (2000-2004) but uses Gen2 Forester drivertrain (2002-2008 NA, 2004-2008 Turbo). Subaru also changed the Legacy design in the 2005 model year but left the Baja platform the same, so almost nothing is compatible between that and any Baja model year. I checked out Rockauto and they list different parts for the front assemblies for both vehicles.
The 05 Baja Turbo lists just a DURAGO 29596008, and the 05 Legacy (and Turbo) lists several: WJB WA513220, GMB 7990299, MEVOTECH H513220, ACDELCO 512293, ACDELCO 513303, DORMAN 930642, TIMKEN HA590315, MOOG 513220, RAYBESTOS 713220, CENTRIC 40147001, BECK/ARNLEY 0516461, SKF BR930473.
Rockauto also lists just the DURAGO 29596008 for a 2005 Forester XT.

No, the item you have linked won't work even close, it's a bolt-on hub. ours must be pressed in. the only way around that is to get a whole knuckle (if unknown condition) from the junkyard.
