Default front hub and bearing replacement?

Is it possible to replace these without taking the front end apart? For example just pop the hub and bearing out then put back in? I figured I would ask the experts! Thanks.

There are tool kits availible to pull the bearing with the steering knuckle in place. I suspect that they work well when things are not rusted but are difficult when they are rusted up.

The bearing/hub assembly needs to be pressed out and pressed into the knuckle, which means the knuckle has to come off unless you have the special tools. The going machine shop rate is about $25 per knuckle for the press work. Some of the better local parts stores also have machine shops so you can get it all done in one location.
