What you need to do is go to an auto parts store such as AutoZone. Then buy the Wheel Bearing/Hub Assembly-Front it runs around $150. Once you have the part you need to take off the Caliper and rotor, I was able to take all of it off without taking the caliper off the rotor. Then you need a 36 mm socket to take off the cv nut. You will need a breaker bar if you don't have a tourque wrench, but remove the nut. Then take a hammer and punch, and place the punch on the cv axle and try to knock it through the hub, pushing the cv axle into the boot a little. Do not pull the hub off before loosening it from the cv axle, that could cause you to have to replace the axle boot. Once you got the cv axle free take the 3 bolts off the back of the hub. If you can't get to the 3 bolts behind the hub you can take the 2 bolts out of the top of the strut and that will give you more room. I was able to keep the strut bolts in. Once the bolts are out it may be hard to remove the hub. I had to use a lot of WD 40 and a brass hammer to get it off. However, most auto parts stores will rent you a tool that will help you take it off, the same tool will also help with getting the hub free from the cv axle if the hammer and punch did not work. Once removed put the new one on. Makes sure you put some lithium grease on everything before installation.
