thedaddycat is gaining momentum as a positive member of FTE.
I changed the inner seals on my truck last fall. One thing is if the inner part of the seal stays on the truck, just hit it with the rounded end of a ball peen hammer. It will cause the thin metal to spread out and give you enough growth in the diameter to slide it right off...

The bearings looked fine so I just repacked them, I had around 80K on it at the time.

I didn't bother pricing the special tools, however, I hunted for a whole day trying to locate substitues based on the dimensions. Couldn't find them anywhere, checked with grainger and a few others online, nada. Wasn't going to sell my kids to even think about snap-on or mac.

You do need a good size hammer and use your old parts with some brass stock to set.

or

take the hubs and parts into a heavy truck shop....they have the right stuff.
