Hi christy hunt,

To replace the lug bults, the wheel bearing has to be removed and here re removal procedures.

With control knob set to "FREE" position and transfer shift lever set in "2WD" or "NEUTRAL" position, remove cover-to-body bolts and cover assembly. Remove outer snap ring and shims (if equipped) from axis shaft. Remove hub body-to-hub bolts or nuts and cone washers (if equipped). Remove hub body and inner clutch from axle shaft.

Place new gasket on axle hub and install hub body with bolts or nuts and cone washers (if equipped). Tighten fasteners. Install snap ring, making sure snap ring fits groove on axle shaft. Apply grease to splines of inner hub. Set control handle and clutch in "FREE" position. Install new gasket and cover assembly and tighten bolts. Check control handle for smooth operation.

1.Raise vehicle and support securely. Remove wheels. Remove caliper. Remove flange or free wheel hub. Use tapered punch to open slits of conical washers. Remove axle shaft snap ring.

2.Bend back tabs of outer lock washer and remove it. Using Spindle Socket (09607-60020), remove lock nut. Remove inner lock washer and adjusting nut. Remove thrust washer and outer bearing.

3.Remove axle hub and rotor. Remove grease seal and inner bearing. Press hub bolts out of axle hub. Remove 2 retaining bolts and separate rotor from hub.

To install, reverse removal procedure. Adjust wheel bearings.
