I did a NS bearing a wee while ago. Fitting the bearing itself was easy once I got it into the workshop. A couple of things to note though. I had to split two ball joints. The bottom ball joint is tricky because its part of the suspension arm and its very easy to damage the rubber cover. Not a problem when you are replacing it. I bought new rubber boots and fitted one after. The top ball joint I replaced as I had to eventually cut the threads to get the nut off. The second issue was with the abs sensor, it didn't want to come out of the hub. The retaining bolt sheared very easily but the sensor itself wouldn't budge. I bought a new sensor but decided leave the original in. I cut the wire up near the top of the wheel arch and when rebuilding I soldered it together using resin heat shrink to cover it . Its been working fine since.
As for the bearing , I had no pullers , just hammers and drifts etc. Generally old bearing shells are always good for fitting new bearings.
