Re: Help! Front hubs must come off.
Sounds like you removed the dial assembly on your lockout with the 6 little allen screws, right? ok, now there sohould be a big c-clip that holds in the main portion of the lockout assembly and a smaller one on the axle stub. take these off and the rest of the lockout assembly should slide out. Now you will see the spindle nut-Not a 6 poit nut, but one with 4 indents. You can get the 4-point socket for this nut from the parts store (explain what you are doing to them, they will know what you need), pull off the two 4 point nuts, remove the hub, and pound out the bad studs. Brakes will need to be removed at some time in the process too to get off the hub assembly. with the hub off, remove the 6 nuts to get the spindle off, and you should be able to pull out your axle shafts.
