Help replacing front hub assembly

Hey, I need to change my front hub assemblys on my 1999 Ford Ranger 4x4 with 4 wheel ABS.


I have tried searching for a tutorial on how to do this and can't find it. Is there one somewhere I am missing? Any help is greatly appreciated.

Clean and inspect the wheel hub. Inspect the axle shaft bore for scoring and excessive wear. Inspect the needle bearing bore for scoring, blueing and excessive wear. Inspect the wheel hub sealed bearing for excessive loosness or binding.

Reinstallation is the reverse.
Recommendation is to buy a Service Manual for this level of DIY or let your superior trained Ford Technican do it for you. It might be less than you expect. At least ask for an estimate.
