    i havent done it on a 2nd gen tacoma before, but i think you basically gotta take off the brakes and rotor, then the spindle nut and you should be in there then. as far as special tools....not really sure, but i think either a 35mm or 36mm socket for the spindle nut. someone else will be along to correct that if im wrong.:)

    by the way.......welcome to tw!!

    no.......those bearings should just slide out after you have everything loose.
