Re: AMC 20 axle shaft removal
you will need a slide hammer, which you can probably rent from a parts store. if you want the existing brakes, you will need a 50 ton press to get it off, it is nearly impossible to get the shaft and hub apart with a sledge or a hub puller so don't waste your time. the only way i could get it off is a 50 ton press. that is how they are put together at the factory. disconnect the brake lines and e-brake cable, then take off the axle nut, thread on the slide hammer on the shaft, and then pull it out. then take the axle shafts to a machine shop. good luck, at least they didn't break before you changed them.
