Question about 1999 Chevrolet Silverado 1500
Raise and support the vehicle on jackstands. Set the parking brake and chock the rear wheels. Remove the tire and remove the brake assembly (caliper, pads, hangar, and rotor). Loosen and remove the nut on the center of the hub (the large one that holds the cv axle to the hub). Then pop out the tie rod end so you can get clearance to the three bolts behind the hub that holds the hub assembly in place. Remove these three bolts, or loosen them as you work the hub assembly out of the knuckle. This may take some "persuasion" from a hammer or a chisel, as they sometimes rust to the knuckle. You wont have to remove the bolts all the way if you continue to loosen them a little at a time as you work the hub out. Disconnect the electrical connector for the abs (if equipped), and remove the assembly. Install is the reverse of removal- put the new hub assembly in place, start the bolts, then tighten them all the way and connect your electrical connector for your abs. Put the rest together, make sure you bolt your cv axle back up. Pump the brakes when you're done, before you drive! These can be frustrating, but it WILL eventually come out. Feel free to contact me with any more questions.
Thanks for asking!
