05 F-350 front hub removal.......

OK so I am taking on the task of replacing the front hubs on the 2005 6.0. Now I have searched far and wide and can only really find videos and write ups on 99 to 04. I have a few friends who have PSD and one has replaced his hubs. He told me I needed the axle nut socket to remove the hubs ect... So I find this socket for $50! But I do some more reaserch and finally find this video with my year. This guy did not use this socket, nor was there any nut like that. All there is behind the locking hub was the snap ring.. I have manual hubs. Is there anyone out there that has the 05+ and has changed the hubs? If so, what specialty tools did you actually need? Besides the snap ring pliers.

Are you just changing the lockout hubs? Or the hub bearing assembly?

u do not need a socket u do need some long reach snap ring/circlip pliers

other than that it's cake since you can leave the knuckle seal unless it leaks EDIT you have manual hubs so you might not care if that seal leaks vacuum other than it may let moisture in

ps the hubs are the external 4x4-4x2 selector and even though people commonly call the bearings a " hub"

the term "Unit Bearing " is better suited specially for searches
