Default Re: Changing a Front Hub/Bearing on an S-Series (with pictures)

Hugely helpful and informative thread. I just replaced my passenger spindle with minimal issues based on the info and pics here.
I'd like to add, it is possible to remove the axle from the knuckle if the ball joint doesn't pop loose like mine didn't. By turning the steering knuckle all the way as if making a tight left hand turn and pulling away from the car I was able to carefully coax the axle out. This allowed the use of the puller tool without having to remove the control arm from the car.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
