Front Hub Bearing Studs
2000 SD 4WD
My RF axle hub assembly is shot (probably due to dealer F. up), but thats another story in which I am too pissed at the moment to type out.
I can not get the hub assembly loose from the steering knuckle. I am going to have to hammer on the studs from inside the knuckle to break the hub free.
This of course is more than likely going to destroy the studs, requiring replacement. There are also only 3 studs (part of another story above), so no matter what, I need to find a minimum of 1 stud.
Anyone have a part number or idea? These studs are at least grade 5, possibly grade 8, so its not like I can throw just any thread rod/stud in there.
