99 F350 SD 4x4 - MANUAL FRONT HUB REMOVAL...

99 Ford F350 4x4 with Manual front hubs. I am trying to get the front hubs off my truck to greese them (very hard to turn) and I can't seam to get them off. Wanted to see if there was a trick or somting.

The Chiltons manual I have says to remove the tire...front caliper & disk... then the clip retaining the hubs and then it shows thehub just poping out.

I did above and can't seam to get the hub off (don't see why though, do you really need to remove the wheel and all?). remove the retaining clip and pull on the hub and it won't budge...

Thanks for any help!

Chris

If your talking about the 4x4 locking hub all you have to do is take off the center cap and then take the snap ring out and the hub will slide right out.

Thats what I am talking about...but neither of mine want to come off. So long as I am not going to break anything I might give it a little more muscle.

Thanks for the help.
