Default Need help/guide with Front wheel hub assembly

So my bearings shit the bed on the front left side and I could use some help on how to replace the assembly. I am still pretty new to DIY stuff I have done breaks etc but unfortunately I do not have my Haynes manual right now and I always go by that.

It comes as an assembly so I am assuming everything is packed in, nothing needs to be pressed? Just take the wheel, caliper and bracket, unplug abs sensors. take the spindle nut off, pull the rotor then take off the 3 knuckle bolts and it pulls off?? then reverse? Do I need to grease the bearing inside or anything??

I have a 2001 ford ranger v6 4.0 sohc 4x4 (front and rear ABS sensors) and just bought this

If anyone could give me a guide or tell me some steps on how to do this I would really appreciate it. Also if possible torque specs on the bolts.

man you got the idea. You just explained every step only thing you are missing is a 32mm for the spindle nutt and do not grease it. It's a sealed hub, the bearing is inside. comes with a new abs sensor or at least the one i installed 2 months ago did. i would go ahead and spend the extra cash though for a timken it's 30 bucks more.

be sure to pack those bearings really really well with grease.

No need to lube a sealed bearing. Be sure to replace the spindle Nut as per the fsm. Though not sure if 100% needed
