1999 Taurus front wheel bearing & lower ball joins replacement

Just a quick question to you experts out there: how difficult it is to replace the front wheel bearing hub assembly and the lower ball joins on a 99 Taurus? The scale is 1-10, 1 is for very easy (such as doing an oil
change) and 10 is the hardest (like rebuild the engine or transmission)

the bearing is in the knuckle the hub slides into the bearing and is held on by the lock-nut. the knuckle has to come off the car to replace the bearing. it is held in by a snap-ring. with the knuckle off the car, the lower ball joint can be easily replaced as long as you have the tool to press the joint out and in.
