I assume here, that you plan to undertake only the sink replacement and do not plan on changing the kitchen countertop, on which it is mounted.

The things that you'll need are a putty knife and a socket wrench of appropriate size. Along with that, you need lots of patience.
There are various types of kitchen faucets, but the plumbing basics of removing, cleaning, and reinstalling the faucet remains the same. The problem of a leaky or noisy faucet is faced, when either the parts of the faucet are completely corroded, too old, or are very dirty.

Here are the different types of kitchen faucet repair methods depending upon the source of the problem.
