What size snap ring plier for front 4x4 hub?

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.

tks,
George

Thanks for the reply 06silvercrew. They do appear to be quite stout. I'll look at the
Snap on line and see what they offer. Thanks again.

I realize that I just replied to an almost 7 year old post, but somebody's got to be able to tell us where to get a simple set of snap ring pliers

Now that I got spell check to quit changing it I'm still getting nothing coming up with a snap ring plier using proto. At least I have been able to hold the Sears in my hand, and it's only 25bux

I have a set of craftsman snap ring pliers that worked fine on a 2001, is the 2005 and later more difficult to remove?

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
