Replacing 01 Civic Ex Front Wheel Bearing?

So my wifes car a 2001 civic ex 2dr needs a new front wheel bearing. I can get the bearing for $53 online. Is this something I can do myself? I have changed wheel bearings before but just a clip and the bearing came out and was replaced easily.

Will this one come out of the hub easily? Will I need an alignment after the replacement? What are my other options besides spending $200 at the shop?

Change the whole hub. To knock the bearings out you need a hydraulic press... changing the whole hub can be done much easier at home and the hub doesn't cost much more than the bearings do. No alignment, but replace the axle nut with a new one.

Any idea where I can get a hub? The stores only sell the front bearing and looks like rear hub around here.

I have a friend who may do it for me so I will try that route first.

Honda sells the whole hub. Its about 80 bucks.

They sell the whole Hub/Knuckle and bearing assembely together? Where at? If they sell the hub, you are still going to have to press it into the bearing. My car has about 120k miles on it and the bearing are making that warping sound. I'm interested in replacing my bearings as well. Did them once on my old 93 Dodge Colt, that was a beast with seals and all that.

Any part numbers? I've tried to find a bearing on Majestic Honda, but no luck. I really hate the local dealers around here.
