Well I searched and no luck I want to install my newfields and I have never had to tear apart my front end, it seems easy, one question is take apart the hubs, do you need to take the 6 cap bolts off and then the 6 that hold it to the rotor? Anyway any info would help thanks.

Is this a newbie question. 2finger

I think I got it , with the birfied rings I had installed I think I have to tear down the complete hub, spindle, felts etc....Just to get the axle out.
no easy way out of this.

with the rings the housing had to be opened up.You are correct in that you have to remove the knuckle out.

Don't forget the C-clips on the ends of the axles. I noticed that my Newfields had a lot of movement with out them. My stock axles didn't seem to move as much as the Newfields for some reasion.

Since you are an expert now, can you drive over and do mine for me?:welcome: My locker should be ready for the front this week and I have never pulled apart the front before. David

All I did was keep taking things off until it came out , and then I started working on my zuk:funny:

No really its not that bad, now I see the reason I got this rig I can work on it and most of this stuff is striaght forward. I really did keep unbolting things until the axles were able to slip out.
