your going to need a press for the bearing, it cost me about 200 for one wheel at the auto body, that's including the 80 dollars an hour for labor and parts.

If you buy the wheel hub and bearing in one assembly its real simple to change it.

  1. Remove wheel
  2. Remove brake caliper, brakes and brake mounts
  3. Remove drive axle nut (may need to get a new cotter pin if there is one already there)
  4. Unbolt the balljoints, 2 bolts located at the bottom that connect the control and steering arms to the wheel.
  5. Use a balljoint separator (basically a wedge) to pop loose the balljoint and arms.
  6. Pull the wheel out of the driveaxle, now the wheel can be angled so you can access the hub bolts.
  7. Break those loose, then remove the hub and rotor
  8. there are a couple of ways of separating the rotor and rotor: use two bolts (M8*1.25, I think) and screw into the two small holes located near the center, it should pop the hub loose. That didn't work for me, so I just sat the rotor between two bricks and used a soft mallet to bang out the center.
  9. Reverse the steps and that's it.
