First WELCOME TO THE CLUB; They are kinda easy, take the pullies off the top, take blades off the bottom, unbolt from deck 3 or 6 bolts each, pry the two cone sections apart, that leaves the spindles with bearings to press off each end and press new back on. Then reverse

Welcome. If you're talking front wheel spindles, it's just as easy. Pull off the dust caps and that will expose a collar with an allen set screw. Take that off and you will get to the outer bearings and washers and of course the inside set behind the wheel. Here's a link to your owner's manual and illustated parts list (IPL). The mower deck breakout is towards the end of the IPL and the front wheel spindles are on p.4.: http://bsintek.basco.com/BriggsDocumentDisplay/default.aspx?filename=heCBEN8.sO1rE6CGh5kbp796Dq http://bsintek.basco.com/BriggsDocumentDisplay/default.aspx?filename=heCyEN8coJ3rE5CNj5kbp796Dq
