Kia Spectra? That *should* be a non-serviceable hub bearing assembly, not a wheel bearing, if it's on the front. Whoever told you they can just replace the bearing was probably looking up the wrong vehicle (something that was rear-drive for example) or looking up a rear instead of a front. That price is fairly steep though, I would shop around, since a hub bearing assembly, USUALLY, is fairly straight-forward and not exceedingly difficult. They *will* need to know whether the vehicle has Anti-Lock brakes or not to price you on the correct assembly.
