The only main problem i see you run into are the screws that hold the rotors in...they usually are rusted in pretty tough.
What you do is take a phillips screwdriver and hammer it in with a hammer. Then pray they will move lol.

Other than that, it's pretty straightfoward.

good luck! let us know how it turns out!

nope once you get those 2 screws out your good to go, i actually bought a hammer driver just for that job, it looks like a fat screw driver and when the back side pushes in it barely turns the tip, so you put it in the screw then hit the back of it with a hammer and it breaks the screw loose

Impact screw driver works great, but just try and unscrew them first with a regular phillips. Some come off easy. If you find it nessasary to do the bearings you may want to get some help. For the work you mentioned, you need not touch the wheel bearings.
