SOURCE: upper and lower ball joints
Your better off have it done bt a tech because you need a press to press them out and in. Also you will have a warranty witk the work. You want to be safe messing with your steering and suspension. I hope this helps.

SOURCE: wheelbearing replacement
Welcome to FixYa
the front wheel bearing is a hub unit.
need to remove the tire,brake caliper, rotor, the 34mm nut in the axle, then there is 3 bolts that hold the hub to the spindle, those come off then the hub comes out,reverse to install.

That works fine on a relatively new vehicle but one that has run in salt etc you'll save a lot of time if you remove the steering knuckle completey by separating lower ball joint and outer tie rod end ball joint and bring the whole steering knuckle to a bench to separate the hub/bearing. Soak everything with penetrant, loosen the bolts a few turns and try hitting right on the bolt heads. I also made a very sharp wedge from a chisel and rammed it hard on the other side to seoarate the hub. It will finally come apart then you'll see all the **** that was binding it due to an alumininum knuckle re-acting with a steel hub. Clean the hole and grease everything and fit new bearings

I REPLACED THE ENTIRE FRONT END OF MINE AND WE USED A HYDRAULIC JACK AND THE WEIGHT OF THE TRUCK TO PRESS THEM OUT AND A BALL PING HAMMER TO PUT THEM BACK.
