this is why i went from 36X15's to 34X10's. it was an average of every oil change i had to swap hubs. if the cost for parts wasnt bad enough it was destroying to tires to. if i ever go bigger again its going to be with a solid axle swap. since i really enjoy the ifs ride i dont think ill be going bigger any time soon.94 sub 6inch lift 34inch bfg mt. massive rework project soon. the audio system hit 150.3db so now its time to rebuild and try for 155db. mudpuppy is also getting a new engine, rebuilt ifs, dual 500amp 15.1vdc alts, 5 5,000amp batts, ant the combined wattage with the new system should be close to 15,000watts. this is going to be a wild ride boy and girls.

This is my first time on this blog and first time doing any serious work to my truck to be honest. What all tools do I need to replace my front wheel assembly. i know a jack and a floor jack, an allen tool, but what did you use to actually remove the bolts? is it possible to do it using just a hand tool or do i need something that will have to be plugged in and has some power behind it?

If memory serves me right, I changed one out with my dad quite a few years back and we had to grind the boltheads off because we couln't free them. that was a pain.
as far as tools, I think a breaker bar and regular hand tools should do it...has anybody had better luck with one brand of bearings over another? or one auto parts store or online over another. I've got to replace mine soon.

this is a good post. a little different on my 2003 4X4. my axle nut was 36mm and I needed a 15 mm socket to get the wheel bearing off. it was a fight to get the bearing off, but I got it...sure beats paying the garage to do it for me.
