if you're replacing the front wheel bearing and control arms you will also need to remove the CV axle from the steering knuckle. The bearing assembly is held on by 4 bolts as long as you have sockets ratchets and wrenches that should be all you need. Having an air impact gun would make things easier especially if you have a stuck bolt. If you are unsure of doing the job then I would suggest taking it to a shop.
