go for the second option... borrow a hub remover.. also.. i believe theres a tool to place them back in too.MSHarnett said:air chisel works great, but you gotta be carefull not to damage anything. You might wanna try a jaw puller tool that you can "borrow" from Autozone.
Being a dealer, we have all the special tools but still do it this way as it's faster and easier.Jeff K said:Loosen the 4 bolts on the back of the steering knuckle about 1/2" then use a socket and extension on the bolts (one at a time) and wedge it between the axle housing. Start up the truck and use the power steering to "press" the hub/bearing assemble out a little bit at a time with each bolt. You will have to use different length extensions for a couple of the bolts. Press each one out a little until the whole assemble pops out. Takes less then 5 minutes.
