Thanks, ***** ***** it a difficulty rating of 7. it's a tough job because the rotors-hubs need to be removed, bearings repacked and adjusted for the lower ball joints. The tie rod ends and ball joints require a special tool to seperate them from the spindle. Most auto parts stores loan the tool with a deposit. I have included all of the information that I have available just incase you decide to do the repairs. Instead of me trying to explain it would be best to use the directions. Please kindly rate my advice and information. If you have any questions along the way follow-ups are free!

Thank you for giving me the opportunity to assist you. Your satisfaction and accepting my service is what I work for! If

you can't rate in a positive way please let me know so I can continue to help. I will continue to help after the rating

until you have the advice and answer you need!

Thanks again! ~Honda-Man

I think I can do this, removing the hubs I have done before many time, I have repacked all bearings and replaced many over the years. I just need to get the tools,

Good, it's not too bad just a lot of steps. Please remember without a rating I will not receive credit for my time and information. If I have helped you please kindly rate or accept.

Thanks again, Honda-Man
