front passenger at this point
Expert:  Dan replied 9 months ago.

You need a sledge hammer, if that does not work pull the knuckle and replace the hub and bearing. I can send you the procedure from the service manual if you need it.

Will there be an answer for me?

Didn't want to have to do that.
Expert:  Dan replied 9 months ago.

Try using a torch to heat the rotor around the hub area. Then use a hammer to beat it off.
