Thanks for asking your question.

  1. raise the truck
  2. remove the wheel
  3. remove the caliper and bracket
  4. remove the rotor
  5. disconnect the tie rod (whack the knuckle with a hammer to pop the joint out)
  6. remove the snap ring holding in the hub lock
  7. use a rubber mallet to love tap all around the hub to shake it out
  8. remove the snap ring and washers on the axle shaft
  9. disconnect the abs
  10. turn the knuckle left/right and remove the 4 nuts holding the hub bearing in from behind
  11. pry the bearing off
  12. now use 2 pry bars to work the axle shaft out (its in there really tuff and the seal in the knuckle is the spot on the axle shaft that will hold you up)\
  13. Keep on prying and the axle shaft will eventually work out.
  14. Now replace your u joints.
