Re: front hub bearing replacement ??
Well firstly, should make sure that the hub bearings are indeed the problem.
Since you mentioned that you would like to DIY, I'm assuming you have some common tools at your disposal?
So easiest way to check bearing play is to jack up the wheel in question to take the weight off and conduct quick movements with the wheel in both vertical and horizontal directions. If the bearing is gone you will feel the free play through the wheel - make sure of course that your tie rod end is not creating the play in the wheel.
Only 'speciality' tool I can think of of hand, is the correct socket size for the axle nut as it is most likely over a 1 inch size socket so common socket kits don't go that large normally.
Hope that helps somewhat, cheers![/color]
