    it's not a left hand thread?
    think I'll spray it with something to help it off, so using an impact wrench won't work...
    when I took the locking hubs off it still had oil everywhere and the pads look brand new... /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif

    It's supposed to be put on with 50 lb/feet of torque to seat the bearings. Then backed off no more than a quarter turn. So it is supposed to be less than 50 but not much.

    I couldn't get mine off either because the socket kept falling off, so I used an impact wrench and it came off easily.
