Thanx guys for all the advice. I plan on getting after it when I get off work. If you have any other tips or advice I would love to hear it. Wish me luck.

OK! I'm hoping to start disassembly around 7 so if anyone has nothing to do around then, tune in, I'm guaranteed to have questions. Here we go!

Well the good news is that the front right wheel is solid, that is no play at 12 and 6. The left side, on the other hand feels like the lug nuts are loose. Not just at 12 -6 but any which way. I'm guessing I'm gonna have to replace the whole wheel hub ***'y, correct? I have a good jack and a torque wrench. Other than that what other tools will I need and any advice on where to get the part? I've decided to do it myself, I'm not stupid, I feel good about it. What do you recommend?

probably need a good size hammer, the correct socket for the axle nut, the parts stores can tell you the right one and rent it to you. as for where to go you should look around to the different internet sites, amazon, rockauto, etc. and sometimes advance auto is cheap especially if you have one close by you can enter p20 in the box and get 20% off and still chose the pick up in store option.

my car hammer, the head is molded on so when you hit stuff with the handle it wont break, got some weight to it but small enough to fit into wheel wells.

Thank you so much for all the advice. I will be sure to update the post with pics and status of the repair. Doesn't look to hard. Learn something new every day. Thanks again.
