Default Wheel bearing replacement on a 92' SE

I need to replace the front wheel hub bearing assembley. I need to know the size of the Torx socket to remove the hub, my guess is a 55-T. The hub has 3 bolts, but they don't line up with the holes on the hub, is there a way to make them line up? Will I need a puller

Please help with other info. that might be helpful, or a link that I can go to with pictures

As I recall, there is only one hole on the hub. You have to rotate the hub around to get through the hole to each of the bolts.

Then be careful taking the old one off so that you don't pull and stretch the drive axle out. You want to push the axle out the back while you are pulling the bearing out.

I didn't use a puller, once I got the bolts off I used a crowbar.

Don't forget you need a big-*** socket for the drive axle nut. I can't remember the sizes, though.

I have the socket it'* a 34 mm.

I tried to rotate the hub, but it didn't move do I have to lift the car from the center so that the wheels are able to move?

Did you use a torx 55 nut to remove the bolts?

I believe you have to put the car in neutral to do that. I can't remember the torx size, though. 55 sounds right.
