Excellent links courtesy of bdbyrnes

Step by step guide here including a video:

Good photos and step by step from DIY network:

Really good close-up photos here:

I also recommend you take off the wheel drums and inspect the brakes. If they are in bad shape I would consider investing in a pair of disc brakes... well worth the investment and another project you should consider yourself.

Here is a good link for buying the wheel bearings:

    Here is another good one that I found that would apply to most of us with drum brakes on our trailers. Be sure to check your brakes when doing this as well to see if the pads need to be replaced.

    I know they're old, but an FYI, all links in the first post are bad.
