It is not hard to do - but you need the right tools.
Breaking ball joints and tie rod ends (you might as well replace them while your there) since it is a 97. For that you will need the Forks
and a 3/4 toothe pusher to remove the spindle from the wheel hub.
Other then that I would recommend a lift you can b/c some times getting one of the following items can turn into a pia at any moment.

Also its does sound like your on the right track - but you will know more when you remove the tire.
