Well as for removal there is a air hammer bit that is like cup socket that fit over the bolt head. Basically loosen the bolts, use you air hammer to drive the bearing out.


Another way is to use a steel rod. Take one person to turn the steering wheel and a second person to hold the rod. Not very safe but can be done.


As for the hub I think you have to drive the studs out to get the rotor off.

2 wheel drive...

That's the easy setup with a dust cap and a cotterpin thru the nut.

Then remove the big nut and pull the rotor. The cone bearings are cheap and easy I think.
