I'm no expert but i do know that you can't buy just the bearings at the part store...you have to purchase the whole hub assembly. as far as the required tools i do know that the spindle nut requires a 35mm deep well socket and all the other sockets you need are i believe larger than 15mm but i can't recall off hand the exact sizes...you will also need a punch or strong screwdriver to put in the rotor to stop it from spinning while removing the spindle nut...there is also an axl remover tool required to push the axl through once you remove the spindle nut and washer
