Where to buy rear drums & bearings?

I'm having a tough time finding the rear drums & bearings for my 2000 Wagon w/o going to the dealer! Anybody know where else to find these that won't put me in the poor house?

That's because not many people have 181,500+ miles on a 2000 Wagon and these puppys are toast!

Junkyard? Not yet but with the price the dealer wants for them, I may end up there. Even the bearings are $30+ a piece; they're still in one piece but the cages are just about gone!


drewzx3, thanks for the heads-up; I'll check them out.

I just bought the car from a traveling salesman a couple of weeks ago and besides having all the recalls done for the 2000 model, preventative maintenance, a couple of brake jobs, a water pump, one timing belt which wasn't replaced until 129,000 miles, and some some front suspension components replaced, nothing major has been repaired or replaced on it, and it's an automatic tranny! I feel pretty good about the history of these cars, especially with the Zetec engine, that's why I bought it.

Heck, for $2300 how could I go wrong! It's not perfect by no means but the drivetrain is tight and it drives great! The windsheild was cracked so he a new one put in before I picked it up, the paint isn't the best in the world, it has a few chips, scratches and a scuff mark below the drivers door (he was in a wheelchair, handicap supply salesman) the drivers seat is a little flat but other than that, it was well worth the money. Heck, it's got just about every option available also. I'll try to take some pics this weekend.
