Any problems with getting the bearing out at all? I have mine sitting on my floor and have read the instructions and they look simple enough.

You're probably gonna want a press to separate the hub from the stock knuckle. I had new hubs and obviously, new knuckles, but there is a small spacer between the two that I didn't realize I needed (It must be modified to fit the GMPP knuckles- 2 minutes with a cutoff wheel). Even after a good soak in penetrating fluid, the hub and knuckle were too corroded together to come apart without excessive force.

Yeah the instructions show the spacer and you have to cut a tab off of them it looks like. Well I have a press at home so this migt not be so bad now to just get the time to do it.

If you soak your bolts overnight, things should go pretty smoothly. I had the most trouble with the outer tie rod ends as I don't like hitting them too hard with a mallet, lol.
