Default Changing wheel bearing, anyone got a shop to recommend?

After dealing with the stealership awhile back to get pricing to fix a few things, I am weary of even stepping foot back there to get pricing on a wheel bearing replacement.

A few questions:
1. Anyone recommend a good shop in the Maples/Garden City/Tyndall area to visit?
2. How hard is it to replace a rear wheel bearing?

Is it a press on or bolt on? I suspect an alignment might be required (at least for my scoob it is).

Allan had his done at Fast Lane/Keystone Ford and I haven't heard anything bad. Our good friend Matt Kozminski takes care of us all the time. They're located on Regent though.

Its a press on wheel bearing. Figured I might have to get an alignment done.

I've been to a shop on Erin called Rudy's Auto.

Respectable shop that i go to for all my non-warranty work. They looked after me when i would bring the cooper in since one of the mechs had a cooper i was fairly comfortable with them fixing it.

I've taken the Evo there and had them help me install new brakes and install extended studs on the rear for a fraction of the cost at the stealership.
