    I am doing the brakes on my '83 K10 p/u and i have the outer retaining ring and internal hub out and the inner snap ring out but the hub is still holding on and I can't see what the *%@! is still holding it in there,I know it needs new grease in the hub so i went ahead and sprayed brake parts cleaner in the assembly to see without all the grease and still nothing appears to be holding it in.I'm lost is there a hidden ring or clip I don't see?I'm hoping to get this done tonight (jul 8 10:30 pm, Indiana) so any help asap is greatly appreciated.

    Did you take the spindle nuts off?

    Tool?

    :doah:I see the nut it has 4 tabs directly across from each other but i don't have a specialty tool to get them off, and the closest place where I might be able to get Auto Zone that is open 24 hours is 50 miles away.E verything close to here closes at 9 pm.

    Problem solved,...

    I ended up driving out to get the tool and got it taken care of. Thank you for your help.I've done many brakes before but this was my first 4 wheel drive,so I didn't know what I was looking at,or what to look for.This was a learning experience for me and i got it now.Thanks again.:D

    From the title of your post, at first I thought you meant "husband" rather than "hub." Kinda changes the way it sounds. :D
