89-93 Celica wheel hub replacement

The wheel bearing failed in my car today and I am trying to find a replacement hub. Threw it on the lift to replace the bearing and found that the hub itself is done. The spindle is fine but the hub shaft is done. Pressed it in and found the inner race on the back of the bearing is loose around the center. I reinstalled everything to get it off the lift and is driving ok for now, but I know that there will be premature bearing failure and it just isn't safe.

I searched online OE catalogs but it says NLA/Discontinued. No luck on RockAuto or Advance, EBay, etc. So does anyone know of where to buy or have one for sale?

Did you call a dealer? Several online sources say 43502-20100 is available, that's the front you don't say if you need front or rear which I think is discontinued would need to source used on that.

The ebay linked is for a 5 lug mine is a 4 lug. I need a front hub. It is weird that site I went to showed NLA. I will check some local parts stores as most online stores for Advance, AZ all suck. Thanks for the response.

Got it sorted out. Since the 4 lug wheel hub was NLA I used a 1990 corolla DX hub and Celica bearing. Pressed in just fine. To wrap things up here is a list of whats needed for anyone who faces the same problem. Celica ST Wheel Bearing, Celica front and rear wheel bearing seals for the steering knuckle, 1990 Corolla DX Manual Transmission (not sure of difference between A/T and M/T) wheel hub.

The Corolla bearing itself is a little smaller in outer diameter than the Celica bearing which makes it incompatible with the Celica steering knuckle. The Corolla hub however has the same diameter and length as the Celica hub. Spline count matched up. I said eff it and tried it out and it works!
