    Get your hands on a slide hammer, makes getting the hub out MUCH easier.

    Thanks for the input, already ordered/received the Timken hub assy on Monday. Incredible service from rock auto. Ordered it Monday afternoon, it was delivered Tuesday afternoon (I did not use express delivery). I will keep the slide hammer in mind, replaced the hub on my '88 toronado a few months back, needed a little "persuasion" to come off.

    Thanks again for the advice, took about 45 minutes. Drive axle came pushed out very smoothly with a drive axle puller.
