It was a PITA. Took about 4hrs. You will need some special tools, a fwd hub puller, to push the axle out of the hub. Its a tight fit and I didn't think it was going to come out. You will also need a good shop press to get the hub apart.
The front end felt like it was binding up really bad, popping, shaking and banging. I thought at first my clutch was blowing up! When I finally got it off, I could barely turn it and it felt like it was full of rocks. It was completely fragged. Also there was bearing grease on the inside of the wheel, brave rotor bad brake caliper.

I think mines about to let go I can feel exactly what he's talking about and I've felt it for a while...so basically all the wheel did was move around a lot and not fall off? I'm about at that mileage right now too!

Yeah for some reason it seems that the wheel bearings in the 08+ have been going bad prematurely. I saw an 09 need one at 30K. I swapped to 05 knuckles a coulpe months ago and my passenger side bearing wasn't in the best shape. It had 45K on it.
