Wheel bearing replacement DIY

Anyone have a link for a DIY on the front wheel bearings for an 05 GTO? Or a link for a free online factory service manual? I haven't had any luck locating a free service manual yet.

I went by Chevy today and they claim the front bearings only come as a pre-assembled hub unit with 2 tapered bearings inside for $450. Looking up parts at advance you can buy the separate bearings for about $13/each or a preassembled unit for about $150. It seems they are a typical tapered bearing with races and seals up front. Any reason I can't replace the bearings, races and seals at home?

The fronts are complete hub units. The rears can be replaced with just the bearings. The fronts are fairly easy. The rears are the tough ones.
