    Not hard. Just pull off the caps, and put some grease in them. Find out if they require it first, as some hubs dont like grease.

    yeah i think yours (guessing it is on your 91 you are referring to) you can just unbolt them CLEAN THEM its really important to clean them incase its some dirt or something that is actually causing them to be hard to turn, then pack little wheel bearing grease in and go. ( i prefer to take hubs completely apart and spray em down good with brake cleaner...use a good shop rag to wipe them down and let them sit and dry before re-install)
