They pull out, not just slide ya gotta "yank 'em"

But no clips or anything inside the pumpkin. I think it's the inner seal that's holding them.

Get the dust seals for the tube end and new knuckle seals/O-ring (especially if you're relying on vacuum hubs to work) and be sure to get U-joints with grease fitting in them...

You'll also have to get/make a driver for the Knuckle Seal to install it back in the Knuckle. How 'bout new needle brgs for the stub axle while you're in there?

Once the hub is out you have to get the Knuckle Seal (w/ it's metal flanges) out of the Knuckle. I don't think it can be done without destroying it if it's been in there for awhile...

Now you'll have the clearance to be able to pull the U-Joint thru the hub so it's just a matter of applying enough force outward to overcome the inner seal and it'll draw right out!

Good info here -> http://seven.three.superdutypsd.com/...Joint_Write_Up
