I am guessing you want to do the front ones. The front wheel bearing are pressed in and the dealership has a tool to do them on the car. At home you will need to take the steering knuckles off and take them to a machine shop to have them pressed in. I would recommend replacing the brake rotors at this time. I will give you the steps but you will need to look in the shop manual also. Take off the front tires, Front axle nut, bolt that holds the front brake line to steering knuckle, Calipers along with their mounting bracket, upper and lower ball joints and outer tie rod end. You also have to remove the outer CV joint from the hub. When you remove the tie rod and ball joints you leave the upper ball joint attached until you remove the CV from the hub. Last the hub.

The front axle nuts are very hard to remove without an impact wrench. I have had someone applied the brakes while I muscled it off with breaker bar. After taking off the ball joints and tie rod end nuts you have to get them out of the steering knuckle. You can use a tool call a pickle fork but it will tear the boots for the Steering components and I don’t think you can buy them alone. Put the nut back on the tie rod and ball joint for protection and hit the steering knuckle with a hammer where it surround the tie rod and ball joint. I am sure someone makes a tool to help remove the joints from the knuckle as it takes some hard hits to break them loose and you have to be careful not to hit the ball joint or tie rod end. When you install the new axle nut it is staked in place on the flat after torquing to the proper specs.

Look through the manual and hopefully I gave you enough tips to supplement the book. The steering knuckle is pretty heavy and when you get the last ball joint broken loose it will fall and hurt you if you don’t hold onto it.

A life time ago I did the used cars in dealership. I worked in the Honda dealership but we had many other brands and I did any brand. I know the older Hondas from my time there. As of late I worked for Roush where we did prototypes for Ford. We took a brand new vehicle striped it down to a shell and at a later date built the car Ford wanted. They would do a lot of about thirty at a time with different setups and make fully functioning cars out of them. Basically here is a car shell, a book with all the changes written in some kind of Ford shorthand no one could read, a collection of new parts and make a fully functioning car in thirty days with all the bugs resolved. There were ending bugs to be worked out, but somehow the cars all got finished and passed signoff inspection.

Is your set up the same as the one in this link?If so,you can buy the tool from JC whitney for like 35 bucks.

Heres the link for a 97...not sure if it can apply to your 94,but for my 96 it does.

How come if I post a link I get a warning and either the moderator deletes it or makes me take it down, but not with other members.
