Default 03 l200 front hub/bearing replacement

I have a female friend with a 2003 l200, it's making a horrible bearing hum from the front P side. When i turn to the right (shifting the cars weight to the drivers side) the noise gets much quieter.

I'd be almost sure its the p side front bearing.
My main experience outside of brakes is with fords, and on my explorer (awd) the hub and bearing is all one assembly, so you buy it complete.
It would appear that on the saturn i will have to have the bearing pressed out and then in.
Is there anywhere to just buy a reman hub with new bearings in it complete? If it costs more that's ok.
If not, i could buy a press at harbor frieght if necessary, will a cheapo do the job properly?

Anyone know the size on the spindle nut? That seems to be the socket i'm usually missing from this type of project.
thanks,
Joe

Seriously, nobody here has had a bearing going bad on an L series?
Did i make this post in the wrong section or something?

if your doing it yourself just get a new hub assembly, think autozone has them for like 150. Otherwise you will have to pay to get a new bearing pressed in

I can't locate an entire hub at any chain store . Tried pepboys, advance, and autozone. None seem to offer a complete hub.
