Just bought a 2002 Sierra 1500 4WD Saturday and the wheel bearing went out Sunday, and horribly. I'm in the process of trying to change it and I'm pulling my hair out. I got the bolts out fine, but the hub refuses to judge out of the spindle. I tried punching 2 studs out on opposite sides and using a bolt/nut/spacer combo to put outward pressure on the hub and tapped it, but instead of the hub moving, it pulled the entire wheel flange out with the bearing, and the hub is still on the spindle laughing at me. I've tried an air hammer on one of the ears to try and spin it in the spindle to break the corrosion, been soaked in PB for hours and hours, tried putting a bolt back in and air hammering the head, tried pounding it with a hammer every which way, tried using an air hammer to get between the hub and spindle to pry it off, this thing hasn't moved a hair.... Am I now looking at removing the spindle and pressing it out?
