If it is 4X4 you will need to remove your hub assembly. Then If, 2 wheel drive you will need to remove your brake assembly. The dust cover to get access to axle nut. Remove the cotter pin, then the nut. Be careful of the ABS connection on the back of your hub. Replace bearings, races and the seal. Let me know if you need to know how to load your bearings and I’ll go into more detail.

SOURCE: Replacing front wheel bearing
The brake rotor needs to be removed, drive shaft nut in center of hub then 3 bolts hold the hub assembly to spindle from back side. if it has abs unplug it then some work will need to be done with a hammer and chisel to work the bearing out of spindle and axle shaft from bearing

Welcome to FixYa
there is a u joint to be replaced on your steering shaft just after the steering shaft
open the hood look down to the steering shaft you will see a small u joint very common to go bad most auto parts stores carry the part

this is not really a DIY job,you will need some special tools to remove the bearing and refit the new one.If you know enough to remove the hub assembly then i will explain how to remove the bearing and fit the new one,failing which remove the hub assembly and take it to a local engineers/re-conditioners to have the bearing pressed in and out

depends on what you mean by "hard" if your mechanically inclined no, if you aren't, yes. You will need to remove the tire, the brake assembly and then get a large (32 or 34mm probably) socket to take off the spindle nut, I think on the dakota you have to remove the ball joint with a ball joint separator, remove the bearing assembly from the half shaft. (standard procedure on most vehicles) Hope this helps!

understandably you want to do things right. i do this job by tightening the nut with channel lock pliers, spinning the rotor, and loosening the nut just til loose and then snug. reinstall the castle washer and then a new cotter pin (if available). make sure there is no lateral play(up and down). you should be good to go. happy holidays
