    buy some snap ring pliers, if you bought them new they should come with directions, kinda difficult for me to explain without actually looking at them heh, sorry not much help..

    Get the regular warns.
    I dont know how to pull the stocks apart but it couldent be that hard so ill tell you go to do the warns(both warns work the same)
    Pull the bolts out of the cover
    use a pick to pull the snap ring out(you can use snap ring pliers)
    put one bolt back into the hub with out the cover on
    pull on that bolt the hub will side out
    slide the new hub on
    put put the snap ring back in put the cover on put the bolts in in a star pattern
    check all the bolts twice if any are loose they will let water in.
    IF I FORGOT ANY THINKG SOMEONE PLEASE TELL ME(I HAVENT PULLED A HUB APART IN A FEW MONTHS NOW /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif)

    There are two snap rings on my 10-bolt - the big one on the outside (two small screwdrivers work well for me to get it out) and the small one on the axle shaft (snap ring plier).

    that about sums it up. you can reuse the spindle nuts that are in there alredy. i did not know this when i first put mine in so it took a little longer. make sure you put it in in the righ direction also. i neglected that as well but realizd it before i put the cover on.

    Spindle nuts don't have to be removed is just swapping hubs.

    As for snap ring pliers, I have a set, but never use them. I just use a small flat blade screwdriver. Takes an honest 2-4 seconds to remove and it can be done with one hand. Same with installing it...Althought that generally takes 2 hands... /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
