Default Gearheads and Mechanics, Need some advice Please

I am soon within the next month replacing both of my front wheel bearing hubs. What is the easiest way to do so? Is there any special tools needed? I will also be replacing both cv shafts.

For the hubs you need the right size torx socket (I think it'* T-55, not sure) and the right size drive axle nut (I think it'* 34mm, not sure). You will need all of the right tools to remove the caliper and brakes.

For the drive axle, the manual calls for a couple of special GM tools to remove it, not sure if you could do it with standard household tools.
