Default Tune-up/ wheel bearing

Over veterans day weekend I'm gonna drive the family accross the state (500ish miles) to the inlaws and while we are there im planning to do some work on the bonneville. From reading on here the car has all the symptoms of a wheel bearing problem so I'm planning to do that and a tune up. For the tune-up im planning to change the oil, transmission filter/fluid, pcv valve, fuel filter, spark plugs/wires, and wiper bladers. the car has 113000 miles on it and since I got it all that has been done for maintanence has been oil changes. If anyone could reccomend anything im missing for a tune-up id appreciate it. Here is a list of the stuff im ordering to do the work. Also does anyone know a good repair manuel to get for directions on changing the wheel bearing?

You may as well throw in an oxygen sensor, at that mileage. AC/Delco, or Denso only. Others will likely fail rather quickly. The factory service manual is the best way to go. You can check ebay. They're often sold there. Or, sign up for a subscription at http://www.alldatadiy.com/

A guide for changing the hub can be found here. It'* for a GTP, but the procedure is basically the same.
