Here is the easiest way . take a 14mm socket and extentsion and place it on the bolts and place againt your axle tube and start your truck and turn your wheel against it instead of pounding you will use your powersteering like a press to get your hub out its quicker and less strenous than pounding on the bolts ive done this many times i even made a extentsion for it i use a 14mm 1/2 drive shallow socket and a extension thats about 4 inches long i know im posting late on this one but if it helps anyone out then great

That works fine on a relatively new vehicle but one that has run in salt etc you'll save a lot of time if you remove the steering knuckle completey by separating lower ball joint and outer tie rod end ball joint and bring the whole steering knuckle to a bench to separate the hub/bearing. Soak everything with penetrant, loosen the bolts a few turns and try hitting right on the bolt heads. I also made a very sharp wedge from a chisel and rammed it hard on the other side to seoarate the hub. It will finally come apart then you'll see all the **** that was binding it due to an alumininum knuckle re-acting with a steel hub. Clean the hole and grease everything and fit new bearings

????? This vehicle should be equiped with tapered roller bearings. Ball bearinga are out dated and not used since the 60's. No on the hub assembly, The brgs go into the hub and are replaceable as a seperate part.. $ 500.00? This is a mechanic? Do this, jack up the front end of the vehicle and rotate the wheel to determine if there is a proble. Not ant rough or hanging up of ythe wheel while turning it. Then put one hannd on the top and one on the bottom and push and pull. You are now checking for loose bbearings. Any looseness or roughness is a call to have the wheel and hubs pulled and inspected. 500.00? He is trying to get rid of you by quoting an outrages price. If you accept the estimate he is all the more happier for ripping you off. Take it to another shop and say no more than " Please chk the front end and wheel brgs. DSay no more than that and leaave them to their work. They will call you when they need you. Ask for the old parts if you have them replace or repair.. My estimate. 20 to 30.00 in parts and shop time 1.5 hrs. A reputable shop will show you where,why,and how.the process works..

This is a very simple job to do. Raise the front of truck off the ground,block the rear tires. Using pliers and a hammer,remove the grease cap from hub. Remove the cotter key and nut from axle,pull out slowly and remove outer bearing. then remove hub from axle. To remove inner bearing ,prop hub on a board and use a large punch to drive out bearing and seal. Clean out inside the hub and install new bearing and seal. Replace all parts in the reverse as you took them off. Hope this will help you.
