Re: wheel bearings
yes I did they were still very hard to get out, the puller did the trick I heated the hub again to put back in but I had to tap the larger bearing in the last 3 mm to seat it
Just did the same job on my '06 LT. I used a propane torch to heat the hub, this made the job a lot easier to remove the bearings. I used a 2 leg puller that I had to use a flat blade screw drive jammed between the legs so they didn't come off the inner race of the bearing. The 2nd bearing I just heated the hub & punched out with a larger piece of pipe.
For the install I heated the hub to around 170F & I also placed the bearings in the freezer for 30 mins, they just dropped into the hub
