If you need any help getting the hubs off, check the tech info area. I have a write up there about removing the hubs with a simple and cheep tool. Works every time.

"had riveted ball joints time consuming pain in the butt."

Yes, they are. Even the air chisel struggles with those riveted ball joints.

nice. i also got some bad news today. apparently its illegal in tn to have tint on the front glass. so not only does that mean i need to transfer the title to my mother, (transferred my license, need to transfer the tags within 30 days) but it also means i cant get my tint re done where the huge glass table top put holes in it. gonna have to pay the outrageous nw indiana prices next time i go up.
