Ya it gets way worse at high speeds, I had the clutch done also so maybe they didnt get put back in right. Gonna do new ball joints on monday and tell them to recheck the CV joints. Dropped the car off on the way over my wife said it looked like the wheel was gonna fall off it was shakeing real bad.

You have to buy the inner and outer seals when you press the new bearings in the hub as well. It's a $100 worth of parts.

I have to replace my pass side bearing... I just never really even tried or done this to our cars. my sisters civic, we have to take to a shop to get it out. Can we just take ours out and put the new one in at home?
