2006 Chevrolet Equinox Question: Do I need to remove the suspension or wheel hub to replace front wheel bearing?

Does the suspension or wheel hub have to be removed when replacing the front wheel bearing? Is this something I can do in my driveway? I've replaced wheel bearings before but not on a newer car... What needs to be done to replace this part?

    What needs to be done to replace it as an assembly? I have the three 15mm bolts removed from the inside of the wheel flange. I have the nut removed from the axle too but I have not been able to get the assembly to come apart at all.
