    It shouldn't be too bad on that being that its not super old. Hardest part is getting the 4 bolts out of the back that hold the hub on the spindle, some times they like to seize. Make sure you have a good 6 point socket on those because if you round one off its a bitch to get them out. Pretty sure thats a 15 mm socket for those 4 bolts.

    The big nut that holds the half shaft into the hub is a 35mm, Most hub nut socket sets have 34mm and 36mm. I used the 36mm and it worked fine. I have the hub sockets if you need to borrow them just let me know.

    So did you work on it yet? I didn't see the sockets back so I figured you weren't done yet.

    No problem, I don't need them anytime soon, just curious how it worked out for you.
