Wheel bearing

I have a 2005 f 350, long bed, xl. I can hear noise and feel something in my left front end when traveling over 30 and slightly turning left. I found the whole hub w/ bearing assembly on ebay for 140 bucks with abs, I was wondering what special tools i would need to do replace hub? Just bought the truck and havent done this before.
Thanks!

Do yourself a favor and buy OEM or Timkens… you WILL be redoing the bearing very shortly if you don't purchase high quality wheel bearings.

yea, please don't make the same mistake I did and go with one of the cheaper Ebay items. I think it lasted 3-4 months before that entire wheel seized up on my way home from work. Still found a good deal on Timkens (bought a pair just in case) for like $350 on ebay. Haven't had a problem since..so it looks like I'll have this spare for awhile. Only "problem" I had, was the studs came in a different thread, so I had to swap out from my old hub. Thought that was strange, but haven't had problems so I guess it was just a fluke.
