    Take out the axle shafts, then remove like a front hub.

    It uses a special 6 prong socket to get the nuts off.

    Be careful it weighs like 80 pounds /forums/images/icons/shocked.gif

    Are you in good graces with any mechanics in your area? You may be able to find someone who would let you use it, then bring it back. I dunno, just tryin' to help. How soon do you need it? You could always have someone buy it for you and ship it to ya.

    If it is new enough it will only have one nut with a sping clip and a key way. If it is that way you can just use a chisel and hammer to unscrew it. My 88 dually and all since were that way I dont know exactly when it started but is sure is easier to work with

    To get the nut out, just use a long flat head screwdriver and a hammer. That'll get it off, just don't garf up the threads. Putting it back in, you'll prb. want to go ahead and get the socket, but the screwdriver method will buy you some time /forums/images/icons/laugh.gif
