    I think the hardest part is the snap rings, and trying to see what's going on in there with all that grease.

    The one set of Mile Markers I had were junk. Toughest part can be getting the big snap rings out. A pick type tool usually works pretty well. And this is assuming you have snap ring pliers for the one on the axle shaft.

    E-mail mile marker they'll send you a new hub free of charge, or if you know which part broke tell them and they'll send it. Then you'll still have a spare set.
