Re: Dana 60 Hub Removal Video

do not need to tear apart whole locking hub . 1 center snap ring off stub shaft and 1 out of the hub/rotor body . then 2 hub screws in to let you pull on them and pop out hub complete .

drive the caliper wedge the other way next time . much faster and easy to swing the hammer .

the socket you didnt like is the better one in my opinion . the second one if not careful can break the little tiny pin off on the inner nut and screw you on a sat/sun when no body has that part . so watch your self .

the snap ring pliers will pull the lock ring out and help install a lot better also if you have trouble getting it to move in there . and FYI: the lock ring holes are off set on the tabs location . so if off by a hair of lining up the inner pin to the washer hole flip it over .

last trick - put the outer nut on a few good turns . then pull the hub/rotor down and out . the nut will catch the bearing and use it to pop the wheel seal out and not hurt the bearing . make removal super easy and you wont need a seal tool or prybar .

good job on the video . these are just my few tips to help others later .
