    Pretty simple. No special tools or anything. You need everything from the backing plate out. Back plate, rotor and hub, and thats about it. Your locking hubs and wheel bearings will swap right over as well as the caliper. Hope this helps:waytogo:

    yes sir.

    only "special" tool you'll need is a hub socket, its 4 prong, and you can get it at local part store.
