    Anything special to know besides bash the old one out with a hammer and suck the new one in with an impact? Axel doesn't have to come out does it?

    No it doesn't. You may just have to finagle the studs in but you should be good.

    ^^^This, very simple, i like to set up a couple of washers when i go to pull in the new one, but other than that, it's easy.

    No, You may have to rotate the axle a bit when inserting the studs, but the brake shoes can be left in place.
