2005 wrx rear wheel bearing

hey all, the time has finally come, after 125k to replace my left rear wheel bearing. the job looks pretty straight forward but i have a few questions so that i can do it as quickly as possible (its cold as balls out)

1. i dont have a bearing press, i would like to just replace the entire hub and bearing assembly. anyone have a part # for me?

2. is there anything i will also need to buy other than the hub/ bearing?

3. any common problems with the job?

4. any tools i will need other than normal hand tools?

thanks
nate

Here's a link to a NASIOC wheel bearing replacement tutorial:

I had mine replaced by a shop, but they sent the hub assembly out to have the bearing replaced in it.

If I recall correctly, it cost me $400 to have the shop replace the rear wheel bearing.

I used a shop because a press was required. We've changed the front wheel bearing ourselves on my gf's GTI, because no press was required.
