Am attempting to remove front hubs on my 05 f250.
The snap ring pliers I have are too small. Purchased
an internal/external pair at Sears and they're too wide
to fit inside the hub. Can anyone let me know what
size internal snap ring pliers are required to remove
the hub snap ring or better yet what make/model of
snap ring pliers they successfully used to remove the
snap ring. Any info appreciated.

Reason: to include they're manual hubs...not the esof automatic on the fly type.
Why don't you take a look at harbor freight tools, they have 3 different sets and very reasonable price. Mind you these are not for PRO work, they are for DIY and may only last a few times before they become wore out. read the reviews.
I surfed Harbor Freight here in Mesa. Found about 3 sets. Describe them as Fisher Price Far East offshore quality at best. Cost less than 5 bucks and in no way adequate for the job. I've done two of these removals. One on my 2005 and one of my sons 2006. So 4 clips removed and 4 clips installed. So I am "experienced with the process". Just wished I had bought the seal driver tool, as now we have to redo both trucks due to leaking seals. Harbor Freight sets were both way to short to reach the clips which are at least 3 inches inside the hub, and no way strong enough or have enough spread to do the job
