Bearing Replacement on Front Wheel Drive

1994 Plymouth Voyager, 3.3L V6

I'm hearing a faint grinding noise and some vibration from the front wheels when driving. I've replaced the rear wheel bearings about a year ago.

My question is: what is the level of difficulty for changing front wheel bearings on a front wheel drive vehicle? Do I need specialized tools? Is this something best left to a pro?

Thanks!

There are 2 types of bearing replacements
1) entire replaceable hub
2) Pressed in bearing
I think that one may have a replaceable hub but can't remember for sure. The hub is very easy to replace where the pressed in type is very difficult and require a press or machine shop.
A call to the parts store will tell you what type you have.
