Front Wheel Bearing and Travel

So last week my lude started squeaking at low speeds, <35mph. I just bought the car a month ago and it was fine. I figured it was due to the previous owners mistake of putting an ebay lowering kit on it, so I replaced the springs/struts yesterday, but it still squeaks. My dad says its a wheel bearing and it should be easy to change. On further research, it's not looking to be easy at all. I figured the bearing would need pressed, because I just replaced them on my beetle, but from what I'm reading you need a special tool to pull them out and also to disconnect the tie rods. I don't get paid for another 2 weeks so replacing them right now is not an option. I have to travel 300mi this weekend and than another 300mi back the following weekend. Should I be worried about my wheel falling off? Could it be possible they just need repacked with grease, and if so is that any easier to do? It's a '92 Si.
