Special Tools??? Water Pump Replacement

I am about to tear down the beast and replace the squealing water pump... Just wondering if there are any tip or special tools required to replace? Any in-site or advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

Nothing special required. Make sure the new pump has a gasket.

its not too hard if you take off the fan assembly and depending on the miles you have check out the alternator i had my alternator go bad the day after i did my water pump and had to get back in there and i changed out my thermostat and thermostat gasket and put on a new belt i also trimmed filed/sanded the fan shroud so i can see if i have any leaks and get to them without having to take out the fan assembly
