    Once youv'e done them a time or two you can usually do them in about an hr's time with a parts washer that is.

    yeah we replaced those today too. when we were bleeding the bakes we let the MC run dry so we sucked in a lot of air but it's all good now.

    WHy did it take you so long?
    Just remove the hub and unscrew the two special nuts.
    Not trying to be an ass, but now that you've done it it ougt to take maybe 30 minutes for both sides.
