A few months ago when I went to the dealer to get a bearing kit, which includes bearings, the seal on the spindle and spindle caps, the kit was $85 per wheel. I ended up getting the drums for $92 each with the bearings already in the drums. Didn't get the seals because they didn't have a separate listing for them. I was able to easily re-use the spindle caps. I tried using drum/bearings from Advance and had to return two sets because one set was out of round and caused a vibration and the other set began to make bearing noise after a week.The new drums also solved the rear brake squeal we had.

So you can go to the dealer and buy the OEM parts or try all the junk chinese aftermarket parts.

Yes, there is only one bearing and it is the sealed type that is pressed into the drum.
