Also it could be that you wheels are out of alinement causing bad wear on tires and ( hard steering or constant steering ) problems, also shocks might be worn.

If you drive in deep puddles regularly you could shorten the life of these bearings, especially on 2000 and up Maxis as they stopped using a outer axle seal on these models.

Axle nut preload is very important, too tight will cause premature wear of the hub. The proper preload for a 2001 Chevy Blazer is 103 foot pounds.

I need to know where may I find the manual or instructions on replacing a 2005 nissan maxima wheel bearing?

The front wheel bearing is a pressed in bearing. It will require the services of a machine shop to press out the old bearing and press in the new one. What you will need to do is separate the knuckle from the front suspension of the car.

Remove the axle nut. Separate the outer tie rod from the knuckle. Remove the caliper and the rotor. Separate the lower ball joint from the knuckle. Remove the two bolts that hold the knuckle to the strut. Once the knuckle is free you can take it into a machine shop or some auto shops and have the bearing pressed in and out. I will add that it is also common for the front hub (the part that has the wheel studs in it) to wear out on these as well so don't be surprised if they tell you you need one.

My 96 nissan maxima is wearing the tires out o the inside is an aliment all i need?

Depending on the mileage of the car, you may have worn bearings or have developed play in steering components. If either of those are at fault, alignment won't help.
Those are things you may be able to establish yourself by getting the front wheels off the ground (securely, not with a jack alone) and have another turn the steering wheel from lock-lock while you watch carefully for any odd movement or even 'clunks.' Wheel bearing play, once severe enough to cause uneven tire wear, can often be found by grasping the wheel top and bottom, then side to side and jerking it up/down or back and forth. If they are worn, you may feel and hear it too.

1990 Nissan Maxima V6 a/t: vibration above 60 mph

Start off with a tire rotation. That should solve the problem. If problem presist the next best thing to do is have your wheel bearings checked. In order to check your wheel bearings you need to lift the car from the front (suspending the the front wheels. With both hands grab the tire on both sides and move with back and forth motions. If you find much play then you need to change your bearings. These things will cause movement at high rates of speed

Hear a grinding noise from the right front wheel when I make left turn (mostly). Noise has now progressed to anytime the wheel is in motion. Also hear squeeking sound (ball bearing possibly?). I've changed...

You should definitely pull the front wheel and check the bearings (they are roller bearings, not ball bearings). With the wheel off, you should be able to isolate where the noise is coming from, but I vote for the bearings. Check, replace and/or repack, and adjust properly. If you have noise, you should be able to feel the "play" in the bearings, or see the wear problem on the spindle and bearings. I hope this helps you.

When i go over 55mph my front end trembles so bad it can be felt on the steering wheel

There are multiple reasons the front end could be shaking.

1. Tires are out of balance or one has become separated causing a knot.

2. One of the front bearings is going out.

3. One of the 2 front cv drive shafts are wearing out or bent.

4. Inner and Outer Tie rod ends needing replaced

Above are the 4 main causes of vibration in the front end being able to be felt in the steering wheel. i would first take the vehicle to the tire shop and have them check the balance on all 4 wheels. Also, while they have the wheels off, ask them nicely if they could check out the front end for you.
