smoked hub bearing

thought it was a trashed caliper, but after replacing it.... needs new hubs assembly. not a fan of unit bearing assembly's. so much cheaper to replace bearings by them selves.

unfortunately i will be underway all next week and won't get to fix it until saturday and i have duty sunday. crap!

are there any special tools required to pull the old hub assembly and pop on a new one? only the drivers side is toast but i will be doing both sides.

buy only a Timken brand like the OEM if u are keeping the truck but they are available at Amazon and autozone

u need a long set of circlip removers for the clip and some folks get the new studs
instead of transferring them

It` a spring type clip that holds your planitary gear in your hub, it looks kinda like a slinky. If your careful it can be removed with 2 small screwdrivers, it spins out.

Halfway though doing my driver side. I chose to replace the studs. Yup taking the easy way out. I wrestled with one and said screw this. Would be nice if you could get the hub assembly with them in it already. Maybe some do but not the one I got from NAPA. Next day off doing passenger side
