Success. Mostly... The right hub was making noise. I was able to pop the axle loose in the hub with a two jaw puller. It was really easy. To remove the hub axle nut you need a 1 5/16 deep socket. To remove the hub bolts you need a torks #55 ( I had a 50 and a 60) Now I have a 55 also. The hub pried out of the mount without to much trouble. The reinstallation of the new hub was easy. I cleaned the mounting surfaces and axle and lubed. The bad bearing was replaced. I wanted to change the drivers side for good measure but could not get the axle to budge out of the hub with my 2 jaw puller. I just gave up and decided "if it ain't broke, don't fix it." Thanks for you help. I hope this may help others doing this job. Get the correct puller, socket and torks (sp) before you start.
