It's not a bad job. Remove caliper and bracket, remove rotor. Remove retaining clip that holds 4x4 lockout in, remove lockout. You will need a pair of snap ring pliers to remove clip on axle shaft that is behind 4x4 lockout. On the backside of the knuckle there are 4 nuts. Remove nuts, and pull bearing out. You might have to have a puller to get it out, or you can use a hammer and smack the back of the flange to remove. Also, if you have ABS breaks don't forget to disconnect the harness since it comes out with the bearing.

If I forgot anything, I'm sure someone will chime in.

Any tips for removing the studs that hold on the bearing housing from the old housing?
The new one does not come with studs and can't seem to find any.

Have to buy new ones from Ford if you want them. You can buy a stud remover that hooks to a 1/2" drive ratchet and take them out that way. They will be extremely tight when removing, just so you know what t expect.

You can get a stud remover at a lot of places. Sears has them, auto parts stores might rent them or carry them. This is the type I use.

O'reillys come with studs....or at least the three times i have bought them they have. Otherwise 2 of the nuts , down on the threads with them , then slowly remove them. I would buy new ones first though since thats a PITA.

Sold 01 350 6" on 37's and mild mods, 00 X 4" on 35's, 02 f350 4" 35's molded from fan to drive shaft, ridin the 03 with nose conversion with 125k and counting upwards slowly.
Never had CNC on any of it, never will.
Take 3/4 of the info and recommendations on here with a grain of salt
