These 2 items would have helped a lot;

A Slide Hammer Puller will take that hub off easily;



WD40 is next to useless as a penetrating oil;



Looks like you had a good time at least

Cheers,

Did you check the make sure the teeth on the spindle wasn't FAA Zooed up?? lookin @ the back piece.. it seemed you pry where it attatched to the spindle. This may cause issue if it was mangled (teeth warn and bent in spots ) a bit for the next removal.. and or even worse. (teeth worn and bent or rounded )

But glad you did it.. yes yes... now we know why god created swear words..

We definitely stayed away from the teeth on the driveshaft and the CV boot, for obvious reasons, but the hub when in without an issue (albeit a bit snug).

No problems to report thus far.
