Installed new Timken units on both sides as part of my CTS-V2 brake upgrade and pulling and replacing these assemblies is the easiest part. It's cheap insurance and @ 65,000 miles why not. The Timken units in the box have "NSK MADE IN JAPAN" on them and the OEM units also said "NSK MADE IN JAPAN" on them. Only negative for me was that I have a bad wheel speed sensor and was hoping it was one of my front hubs, alas it was not. I will be replacing the rear sensors when I do the Harrop diff cover, later on.

There once was a thread about replacing them - pretty easy, jack car, pull wheel, caliper and rotor, with 10mm hex drive you find the 3 bolts - take them out - hub falls out. I suggest cleaning said bolts and putting fresh blue loctite on them.

reverse removal - connect wire harness. should be golden. there is not a relearn process for ABS sensor replacement necessary.

So the 10mm hex drive, I got two (the easy ones on the sides) off but the top one is the most difficult. Clearly since I have gotten two off I'm using the right tool but DAMN! There is a large nut and bolt that is in the way. Need recommendations on how to get this 1 bolt off

Yeah for the most part. Like I said the top bolt (out of the 3) is the only one that I've been having problems with. I've tried using an allen wrench and double wrenching it but said wrench has started to round out the bolt.

The picture should explain to say the least

First time attempting to replace my studs and trying to get these bolts off. I clearly understand how to remove 2 of them. What I am asking is if there is another way or advice on doing so. NOT just simply saying "Its easy to do". Looking for to hearing what you did to get the top 10mm hex bolt out without removing the bolt around it with limited spacing. ^_^

When I did it,

I took the entire shittery off and put the knuckle in the vice.

You, can get a box end and a socket, 15 or 17mm I believe and pop that strut bolt out and make some room for that 10mm Allen.

A 1/2 drive 18v impact is worth every bit of 200 bux and then some right about now.

Follow ALL of the instructions. Specifically step 7 from the written ones posted by Spooky_Pitboss.

You have to take the nut off of the upper strut-to-knuckle bolt and back the bolt out in order to remove the socket head cap screw that retains the hub assembly.

Some people make the job way harder trying to make it easy on themselves.
