Any tips/advice? I'm going to start tearing into my wife's car this weekend because the bearings are making an awful grinding noise at low speeds, so I feel like this needs to be done soon.

I bought from rockauto new hubs and bearings, but looking at them, it seems like the bearing goes over the outside of a shaft on the hub. Other that than, I'm not really sure how it all goes together until I look.

Just curious as to whether this can be done without a press or any special tools? I have an impact gun and all the sockets one could need, but I don't have a hub puller or bearing press or anything like that.

I've done a bunch of searches but can't seem to really find the answers I'm looking for

You will need special tools to press the bearings out and back in. It's best to take the steering knuckles to a shop and pay about $30-40 each for them to do that. This is what some members did.

But you can take a look at this DIY, yours similar:

See post #8 and #9 here. Post #9 has a link to the Hub Tamer DIY:

Harbor Freight sells, or some parts stores rent out, a wheel bearing remover/installer set. It's similar to the Hub Tamer without the hub remover jaw, but you can instead borrow a slide hammer hub puller from parts stores' free loaner list with refundable deposit. See how the HFT set works here removing the bearing:
