Alright, so I'm attempting to replace a front u-joint in my '01 ram 1500 5.2l. I'm stuck at getting the wheel bearing off. I have the 3 bolts out but the bearing will not come off. Anyone have any tricks for unsticking it? I'm soaking it in pb blaster tonight and we'll see what happens. Any help is appreciated. You'll see the pic below, the dark brown bearing right in front of the dust shield.

Thanks,

Kevin

i had a 3 jaw puller on mine, and taping it. also, had to use some wedges in where that bolt flange is to get it to start coming out.

When I had mine changed, before we put the new ones in I took a die grinder with a sanding wheel on it and slightly opened up the area where the hub bearing sits. It makes it a ton easier to get the hubs in and out if you need to later on. Haven't had any problems yet either after almost 2 years.
