Not a bad idea to change the bearing at the same time if you have the tools (press out the old one, press in the new one).
Yes don't forget to put the dust shield in between before pressing the hub and the bearing together.
Happened to me too that I pressed them together and forgot to put in the dust shield. Then had to press the hub out of the bearing again, and in that case the bearing separates in 2 lol

I would have left it off vs. replace bearing a second time in a row; you could get 100,000 miles from bearing that didn't have the dust collar. Unless you were able to press the bearing back together: that might work if the seal didn't get destroyed.

I've never missed the collar but i have forgotten the big dust shield.
