Did this video help you?

Greg Hill: just food for thought take your bolt and and thread it back in a couple turns and turn your wheel and it will pop that hub loose

Douglas Wallace: just a bit of advice for all you amateurs mechanics, do not go beating on your brake calipers or any of the bearing housing for that matter, with a damn shop hammer. it is cast iron and will brake very easily and cause you more trouble than what you started out with. they make the proper tools for disassembly. yes cost money but not near the money it would cost to replace car parts because of a tight penny..

Mike Adams: you fellers took that hub assembly off the hard way.

KIM COVENEY: Thanks for your time! When putting the king nut on do you tighten it up then back off one or two slots? For the cotter key
Funny nobody talks about that in any video...
When I loosen to the next one back i have a little movement vertically on the tire is that ok?

James Weddington: What was your total time to complete the work?

Adamz678: Sounds like NBA music when your taking the hub off with the wedge and hammer. lol

Ryan Skare: hub puller, hub puller!!

Anthony Romero: nice how many pounds did it take to take off the axle nut on the impact wrench

Thomas Johnson: Very helpful indeed. thanks bud.

sheena griffin: What size socket did you use for the axle?

CubCadet1983: Made it look easy. Hahahahaha I told my wife to wear eye protection when she beats it off. She called me a asshole. Hahahahahahaha

Harry Mingo: You don't need to take the castle nut off. Get the caliper off loosen the bolts that hold the wheel bearing on the steering knuckle and hit them with a hammer. Pull the entire axle with the wheel bearing and change the U joint.  Much easier.

ssb031: I would suggest getting a hub puller ..... they're cheap & worth every penny.....used mine a bunch of times, better than chisels & screwdrivers......but still, well done gentlemen. 

dillon14dj: Mine makes clunking sounds when i put it in 4wd.. is that a bad u joint? scratch tht have replace u joints still clunks

MadDuck RC (Gary Maddux): I looked up how long this would take.and this was the first video that popped up. Good thing too cuz I have a 97 1500 dodge.

K Osgood: Oops. You used a 1 3/4 not a 1 11/16. I made the same mistake. 

victorpapaavp: Curious is this works for both axles on the front? I've got two U joints, not quite as much play, but they're going to need replacement... Definitely a lot simpler than I expected though! Also, do you have any tips for servicing the front Diff? I need to crack mine open and figure out why it whines when I engage the 4wd. After a few minutes, I assume after it has heated up, it starts groaning. Any ideas? Thanks for sharing this vid!

jakewoodstock: little hint that saves a lot of hammering, if you leave the bolts in the hub just remove them about a quarter to a half an inch you can then tap the bolts instead of wedging something in the front side.
      good video none the less.

Avason1: Nice Video brother!
