information on hub bearing

recently i stumbled onto what i believe a bad hub bearing. it is the front driver side. basically the faster i go the more it makes this noise. also it makes this noise epically when under breaking. i am sure that it is the hub bearing. but i could be wrong. also i was doing some research and noticed if the bearing is bad that it is a good idea to replace the hub too. and if that is true than how would i acquire the hub and bearing all ready put together. is this something Subaru sells?

If your not sure if its the hub or the bearing I hope your not driving the car. If it is the bearing your risking the chances of it seizing on you. I would replace both if your going to have it apart, both parts will run you about 60-80 dollars max. Just contact a local autozone and see if they carry the parts if not go through Subaru.
