The front wheel bearing hub?
XL-7 (the dash matters)
my wild guess, is the questions was
what are all steps to do this job. and tools.
the link shows all years, and variances.

here is a photo review, that is accurate up to
1998, and beyond , if you skip the bearing service parts. as yours are INTEGRATED
and NON-serviceable.

the photo 6a and B
shows removing the hub,
so do that , buy a new hub and put it back
the same way, using the tool stated
at the stated ranges of torque
123-180 ft/lbs.
this range allows you to get the screws into the locking rings.

    I sold all my suzuki dogs, when they went bankrupt here. (
    and that very special tool ($80) that fits that silly non standard, axle hub ring.
    (ie. GM truck tools do NOT FIT)
    it's a ring nut, and needs this tool.
    the bearings are crush type.
    unlike say your boat trailer...
    and if not set to the range of torque they will fail in under 3000miles says TIMKEN.
    they have hard proof, (life tests and facts)

    ring 19 is used, even on the newer cars,
    with integrated hubs, too. (facts)

    the matching tool is here

    here is that tool (NOT one sold in our brick auto stores, hard to find and buy them)

    the torque is a range, as seen there.
    and the locking rig tabs only fit some holes.
    you can use the 2wd tool on the newer cars.
    the removal is the same as the photo sequences here,
    the only diff. is your hubs are fixed,
    they do not come apart,
    there are tiny 5mm screws that lock the ring

    I have the official SUZUKI parts page on my
    screen now, it has non servicable hubs
    and has the same locking ring. seen above.
    suzuki sells the hub with or without ABS

    i had to buy a box of 5mm screws,
    as the old ones strip out, on removal
    they can.
    after long long service, or water ingress

You have to take off the front grill and remove the head light assembly. It tells you how to do that in your owners manual. Contrary to some answers out there you DO NOT need to remove the radiator.
