    Open the half shaft nut where it protrudes through the outer spindle/hub assembly, remove the caliper and rotor, remove the four bolts at the back of the steering knuckle/hub that retain the bearing in the hub. Axle nut torque is 132 ft/lb.The axle will be able to be with drawn from the front differential once the outer portion of the hub is disassembled.
