Thanks John. Just to confirm. I need to go through all of these steps down to remove steering knuckle in order to replace the front wheel bearings?
that is correct..you can probably skip the dial indiactor part

One last question. Is it necessary to have the special service tool or is there a common substitute?
Using Special Service Tool (SST) , disconnect the tie rod end from the steering knuckle. SST 09610-20012
a pckel fork will work if you are careful not to tear the tie rod boot. or if you whack the knuckle with a hammer a few times the tie rod usually pops out
