painful when don't have all the tools or experience. Hubs will wear you out geting apart. You're supposed to ruin one figuring out first time. Try getting some overtime and pay for the job.

It all depends on what you want to try. I had never done it before, but the price quoted to me made me want todo it. I spent about $300 on tools, but have since used them on my wifes truck and have save money. But if you dont want to get into a tough dirty job, get theovertime and pay some one to do it. I got alot of stisfaction doing it my self and pretty much broke even the first time.

Its a huge PITA but doable. I started on a fri. afternoon and finished sun. night. I had most of the tools and rented/borrowed the ones i didnt. I am not spending $350+ on one hub again so i went with a free spin kit when i did mine. Have extra wheels to make parts runs when you break stuff too. If you run into problems ask the forum, tons of guys on here who have done this.
