Fronts are straight forward enough, though the bearings can be a "challenge" to get out of the strut 5 X T50 bolts hold the bearing in.

Rears also straight forward, N/S caliper winds back anti-clock which is a pain if you have a clockwise only wind-back tool.

Very good advice, undo the 36mm nut with the wheel on floor before you start.

The bearings are parallel running not tapered roller, think torque setting is 425lb/ft, or very tight if you don't have a torque wrench that goes that high.
