    Ok on my 97 Tacoma 3.4 v6 4x4. I noticed a grinding noise in the front end Itook the left front tire off the truck and found the cv axle is messed up thewheel bearing is pretty much gone. So is there a way to get the hub out of thehousing? As the dumbass that put the lift on the truck welded the hub assemblyto the shock WTF. It was bolted and welded what a DUMB idea. But now I'm tryingto fix it. So can I do it without replacing the whole assembly?

    Under the outer wheel seal, there is a clip that needs to come out so the bearing can be pressed out. The hub is pressed into the bearing, which is pressed into the spindle.
