they require a special tool to press in and out...but you can get that from autozone..

the bit ***** is the seal on the backside of the hub.......it also reqires a special tool and you cant put a new one on without it...

you need to always replace the yellow hub o ring...the big backside hub seal...and the dust seal on the axle when doing ball joints ( a total of 3 seals and o rings per side need to be replaced no matter what)

pay me fuel money and I'll come do it lmao.

You'll need the seal driver for the big knuckle seal, or you can have ford press it on for you (if you're lucky like me they'll do it for free, takes all of 30 seconds) or you can press it on yourself with a home made tool.

You'll also definitely want some BEEFY snap rings pliers. A BFH, and a ball joint press.

Oh I forgot... I jerry rigged some wood to make the driver one time.


Take a 2x6 and cut it to 6" so it's 6x6. Then take two 2x4's about a foot long and nail them vertically and nail another 2x4 across them at the end. Use a hole saw that's just bigger then the axle shaft to cut a hole in the 6x2x6. Put the seal on, then the hole down over the axle shaft and then hammer gently.
