Question Need advice about Wheel Hub Replacement

Does anyone have any pointers for replacing the original front wheel hub assemblies. I am replacing the OEM with Timkins and I was curious about difficulties in replacing then

It is very simple. I do suggest that you get a repair manual if you have not done it before. Also get new seals as well or your auto locking hubs will not work after you reassemble everything.

the seals that you are talking about are they specifically for the 4WD hubs

Yes, There seals that you may need for 2wd. But I know for fact that you need to replace the seals if you have a 4wd.

Nope not at all. Just pop them out and get the new ones in nice and flush.
