    It's very easy. If you've done your own front brakes before, it will be a breeze. You take off the brake caliper and rotor. You'll see a small metal cap on the center of axle shaft where it sticks through the hub. Pop it off with a small screwdriver and behind it you'll see a bolt. I think it's a 13mm but don't remember. Unbolt this.

    Unbolt the ABS sensor...I think it's a small bolt, like an 8 or 10mm, and remove it. FIRST though, make a mental note of the position of it, so that when you put the new hub iin later you'll have it positioned correctly. The new hub comes with a new sensor. Follow the sensor wire back and you'll find where it plugs into a larger harness. On the driver's side it's up near the top of the framerail and easy to get at from under the hood. On the passenger's side, I don't know where the plug is..I only did my driver's side.

    Now on the backside you'll see the 4 bolts (15mm if I remember correctly) that bolt the hub to the spindle. You'll likely need a breaker bar or long ratchet/wrench to break them loose. Remove them and the hub should come right out.

    Slide the new one in, you'll have to guide the axle shaft through the hole, lining up the splines, and make sure the ABS sensor hole is where the old one was..I'm not sure if the bolts are offset so that the hub will only go in one position or not, so make sure the ABS hole is in the same place so you know it's right. I forget the torque specs of the 4 bolts but it's pretty high. The small bolt from the center doesn't need to be tightened excessively tight. It takes a few tries, but then pop the cap back on. bolt the new sensor in and run the wire up to the harness you disconnected the old one from. Along the way there are brackets that the wire snaps into, pretty slick.

    Done. Well, except for putting the brakes back on.

    Hi, i saw your post in changing out the front pads, and I see that you also changed out your front hub/bearings. I need to change mine out, and I was wondering is there anything special needed to change them out and any tips on doing it. I have a 2006 4x4 Xlt
