The bearing tool kit at AutoZone2006
I have a socket set and a 1/2 inch breaker bar 3/8 in ratchet Compressor and a big air impact gun.
Guess I could borrow the slide hammer and bearing Press kit to use with my impact gun from autozone.
Disengaging the axle is intimidating. Not stripping rusted out bolts for things like brake lines and and sensor cables is intimidating. Watching youtubes, pulling the hub sounds intimidating.
Thanks for your input, helpful for my indecision

Then don't forget the axle nut that's IIRC 29mm on the back and 36mm on the front.

Wow prices have gone up. I bought the Axle Set for $35 for HF, 20 ton press for $107, bearing kit for $49, slide hammer was $29. This was all a few years ago of course. Damn, this makes me wish we were neighbors, already have all the needed tools and knowledge, just not the Pilot in front of me. In the time of posing the messages it would have been done already for the price of a Heineken Cube. Have done many neighborly jobs for Heineken (good price at Costco and Sam's Club and better tasting) and lunch.
Of course use penetrating oil on rusted bolts (let soak a few is best) and clean the treads even if using an impact.
