Question Need Help: Bearing Question

Does the SVTf take a reg style press in wheel bearing, or does the whole hub or spindle need to be changed?
The other day on the way home the car started makin a LOUD roaring noise from the front passenger side and when i got it home and jacked it up the whole front passenger wheel kinda sagged all the way down and folded in and took nothin to shake it around...
does that sound like the prob, and if i do need the whole piece, what kinda price we talkin for it...

thnx for all the assistance
Brandon

Moved and merged duplicate threads.

All Foci use pressed in bearings at all four corners.
Though, if you lack a press (or can't find an affordable shop that has one) you can get the hub from Ford with the bearing already installed.
