You will have to have a substantial Hydraulic press with appropriately 
sized dies  to remove and install the bearings, so Gary's approach is 
probably the diy proceedure most of us will have to follow.   Removing 
the hub/strut assembly is some work, but straight-forward.  I would 
just look at sway-bar/control arm bushings and cv joint boots if needed 
and buy the bearing kits with new bolts/nuts for reassembly.
