How do i change the front wheel bearrings on a 1999 sonoma 2 wheel drive?

The bearing is in the hub.. Here are some instructions for that:
  • The wheel bearing is installed in the wheel hub assembly and is serviced by replacement only.

  • You may need Torx sockets to remove the bearing assembly bolts.

  • Raise and support the front of the vehicle safely using jackstands.

    Remove the tire and wheel assembly.

  • At the wheel hub, remove the cotter pin and retainer, then loosen and remove the castle nut and the thrust washer. In order to hold the hub from turning when loosening the nut, insert a drift through the caliper and into the rotor vanes. Remove the brake caliper and support it aside using wire or a coat hanger. Make sure the brake line is not stretched or damaged.

  • Remove the brake rotor from the wheel hub.

  • Remove the bolts retaining the hub/bearing assembly to the knuckle, then carefully pull the assembly from the splined end of the halfshaft. If available, use J-28733-A or B, or an equivalent spindle remover to prevent damage to the shaft or hub/bearing assembly.

  • Remove the cotter pin from the drive axle end nut and retainer

    Remove the retainer for access to the end nut

    Loosen the drive axle nut-here the caliper is installed so a drift could be inserted to keep the disc from spinning

    I have a chrysler lhs 1994 with a bad front wheel bearing and i need instruction on repair

    These are the steps you need to follow for this procedure if you have the proper tools.
    1. Remove front caliper assembly and rotor from the steering knuckle as outlined under "Caliper, Replace" in the "Disc Brake" unit repair section.
    2. Remove hub and bearing to stub axle retaining nut.
    3. Disconnect hub bolts then remove hub and bearing assembly from steering knuckle by sliding it straight off end of stub axle. If metal seal on hub and bearing assembly is seized to steering knuckle and becomes dislodged on hub and bearing assembly during removal, or when removing hub and bearing, the finger disc on hub becomes damaged, hub and bearing assembly must be replaced.
    4. If hub and bearing will not slide out of knuckle, insert a prybar between hub and steering knuckle and gently pry hub and bearing from knuckle.
    5. Tighten stub shaft nut, lower vehicle and with brakes applied, torque stub shaft nut to 70 - 90 ft. lbs.

    The front brake rotors are press fitted to the front wheel bearings and are removed from the car with a special tool (puller) or can be seperated by removing the whole assembly and placing it in a press to seperate them. You may damage the bearing if not done right.
