1. Disconnect the Negative Battery Cable. 2. Lift and support the front of the vehicle. **Wheel Chocks** 3. Remove the wheel/tire. 4. Remove the brake caliper, there are two Allen bolts retaining it from the rear. 5. Pry the dust cap off with a flat head screwdriver. Carefully, don't damage it unless you are replacing it. 6. Straighten the cotter pin retaining the crown nut, remove it and discard it. You should ALWAYS use a new cotter pin. 7. Remove the crown nut and washer from the spindle. 8. Pull the rotor out slightly and push it back on, this will dislodge the outer bearing so you can remove it. 9. Remove the rotor. You should replace your bearings since A. they are inexpensive and B. you have the front hub disassembled If your rotor does NOT have preinstalled bearing races, have the bearing races pressed into your rotor. **YOU CANNOT "HAMMER" THEM IN** 10. Pack your bearings with grease, coat the spindle and bearing races in the rotor with grease. 11. Install the inner bearing and carefully install the inner seal. 12. Place the rotor on the spindle and install the outer bearing and washer. 13. Install the crown nut snug against the assembly 14. Spin the rotor back and forth and continue to snug the crown nut as the rotor seats on bearings . 15. Torque on the crown nut should NOT exceed 15 lb/ft. 16. Install the new Cotter pin. 17. Reverse 1-5 above.

If you are referring to the front bearings, you have to buy a complete hub assembly.

On the front differental there will be a tube looking thing about 6 inches or so long sticking out of it. At the end there will be be a spot to stick a wrench on, that's the actuator, just take a crescent wrench and unscrew it out and unplug the wire. And screw the new one in place and plug it in. Wa-la that's it
