Did you check to see if the fuel pump relay is working? I would get a manual and test that before replacing the pump unless you are sure it is bad.
Yes you do have to drop the tank. My labor guide says its a 1.5 hour labor operation. Autozone have some popular workshop manuals for free on line once you register (for free) on their website http://bit.ly/autozone_repair_info.
