Piece of cake to change, did both of mine in 45 minutes, the tools needed are listed, no special tools required and remember to replace the BACK PLATE before you put the new bearing on!!:

Sweet! thanks, everyone's making a big deal about it. but then again most the people around here drive GM, so a lot of the shops don't repair imports.
