4x4 front wheel hub assy. need help

Haven't been here in a long time. looked around some and haven found anything out. i am in the process of replacing both front hub assemblies. Have been on this most of the day and have got nowhere. Watched a you tube video and the guy said just wiggle it a little and it will come right out. uh huh right. i have pried and beat my brains out and it moves a little but it wont come off. yes i have the lock out off and the snap rings too along with the 4 nuts on the back. Am I missing something?

Nope you should be good...beat on the studs in the rear if you can... if its a little loose pry it off straight..with big pry bar.
Spray some pb blaster in the crack.. what year truck?

Living in the salt belt you will need a bigger hammer.You will also find your dust shields are rotted where the studs go through.

You said it loosened a little. Can you get a chisel in the crack? Buy a cheap 1/2 extension and use the female end on the stud with a 3lb hammer. Make sure all the nuts are off lol.

Spray, push, pull, beat with a BFH, and it will come off when it wants too...

i know, that sucks, but its just the way it is.....

If you have a torch this can be a big help
