It is not hard to do, if you know what you are doing. You will have to remove the wheel, lower ball joint, etc. Pulling the hub assembly off of the teeth of the axle is the toughest. I recommend buying a haynes maintenance manual. With this you will have step by step instructions

This is a old question but I'll answer for people searching the site for answers. I've changed about a half dozen in three different cars in my driveway. Changing a hub is a little harder than changing pads and rotors. It's one big axel nut and three half inch bolts further in. You don't have to remove the strut, axle or ball joints. The hub slips off the end of the axle. You will need a 1/2 drive torque wrench to put the axle nut back on. Go over to GAOwnersClub.com for DIY instructions with pictures.
