Hey guys so this past weekend my caliper seized up. There easily 10 years old so im replacing calipers pad rotors hoses and both my front axle seals on my 95 yj. I got a dana 30 front. My question is I have everything off, bolts out of the hub qnd it still wont come off, I soaked it in pb blast, hit it with a hammer. Can you guys help me out?? Thanks Sam

Slide hammer. Or put the bolts back in the rear and leave them sticking out and turn the wheel back and forth on both sides and it will push its way out.

B-F-H

I pulled the hub on my son's Grand Cherokee over the weekend. PB Blaster and almost an hour with a 3lb sledge to get that damn thing off. I was so exhausted by the time I got it off that I didn't have enough strength left to push out the u-joint that I was there to replace. LOL

No problem! Go ahead and bookmark that website if you haven't done so already! There is a ton of good info. on there for DIY projects and in all honesty, I will go there for some leisurely reading from time to time.
