Remove the wheel, remove the hub nut, remove the brake caliper and rotor, put your socket and extension through the hub flange onto the bearing retainer bolts, undo them, release the abs sensor connector if it has it, remove the bearing and hub flange as an assembly, put the new one on and go backwards from here. Torque the hub nut to 180 ft/lbs, your done.

Hub bolts are around 65-70 foot pounds, axle nut is about 120-130 ft pounds. These are not super-critical. Many at shops are installed using air guns and work just fine. Your main objective is to not have them come loose. If axle nut has a cotter pin, never back off on nut to install. always tighten to get holes for pin aligned.

no that is only the older rear calipers on gm and others. the fronts do not have that style caliper and sound like the calipers are frozen and may be way your changing the pads. try opening the bleeder screw and then compressing them if they go then you need need brake hoses and if not you need calipers. god luck man
