No matter what you are removing, I suggest that you get yourself one or all of these;

1. Shop manual for your year truck
2. Chiltons for your year truck
3. Haynes for your year truck

Basically you remove the socket head cap screws holding the hub on, remove the outer hub assembly, remove the snap ring retainer from the end of the axle (a snap ring tool would be helpful), remove the lock ring seated in the grove of the wheel hub (I use a pick to get it out), slide the internal assembly out. Reverse the order to replace it.

Good luck,

Parts replacement is not trouble shooting, replacement follows trouble shooting

Broncos are MPVs not SUVs

Engines run on fuel, or steam

Motors run on electricity, hydraulic fluid, vacuum, or air

Get a manual. You will also need a special socket. Try a search in this forum. I pulled mine a few months ago. The post should still be there.

A 1/2 drive D44 Socket, you can get them at

JBG = I think it was like $10.00 - $12.00
Advance auto = $12.00 give or take a few $
O'Reilly = $17.00

I just did my ball joints and used one of these sockets..

I have a 90 full size bronco manual hub. I removed snap ring, the manual says the hub body should slide out. I don't see any lock ring or whatever is holding it in. Nothing else mentioned in manual.

Well I haven't taken apart the auto hubs in my 88' yet to replace them with manuals, BUT it seems to me that a lot of the Dana44 hubs ought to be similar. Now I'm hoping someone else who's taken apart something newer than a 78/79 will backstop me here & let us know if the hubs are similar, way off, or entirely the same, but here's a link to a thread I just posted with all the info for the 78/79 hubs from the Factory manuals. Assuming they're at least similar (and hopefully they're the same) the diagrams, directions & exploded views should give you more to work with.

People who say it can't be done should not interrupt the person doing it.

84 Mustang GT (Great car to lose your license with, I recommend it for those trying to do so)
74 Ranchero (429, c6, Currie enterprises 9" w/Mickey Thompson cheater slicks, 1970 Torino shaker hood scoop)
82 Bronco (Canadian truck, kilometer speedo, dual batteries, hi-output heater, dual factory block heaters/etc)
78 Bronco (400, 33" Fun Countries, fastback softtop)
79 Bronco (460, 36" Ground Hawgs, frame-off rebuild)
84 Bronco (bone-stock beater)
73 Bronco (I only had it 2 wks before flipping & crushing it.)
76 F-350 (390, 40" Super Swampers, ugly ugly ugly fire-engine green/yellow cab w/faded purple bed)
78 Bronco (460, 38.5" Ground Hawgs, Dana 60's, boxed frame, frame-off rebuild)
86 Bronco (only truck I've ever had fall thru the ice & just plain disappear. no end of hassles from the ins. co.)
91 Bronco (25th anniversary edition, red w/grey leather everything interior, 31x11.5's)
88 Bronco (33x12.5's)
79 Bronco (Current project, 4" lift w/weenie little pizza cutters)

Looking for 78/79 parts, please let me know if you have one you're parting out.

Yup, SeaBronc confirmed it earlier. The hubs for all the full-size Broncos are the same. The factory info has been moved to the How-To section but here's the link & everything you need is there so go & take a look at it if you're stuck on something or confused about what goes where.

i have a 93 bronco, recently had to replace the rotors so i had to remove my hubs.

it can be a difficult task if not done before, but the only two special tools i have found to need are:
-E-Ring Remover (aka Retaining Ring/Clip, either way, it "holds" gears and fun stuff in place, i broke mine and failed to replace them, aint had no problems and i mud and go on the beach all the time. If you ask me, they are just there to make it difficult)
-Dana 44 Socket- has 4 teeth on it that reach in your hub assembly and "Spin" it out.

good luck
1993 Ford Bronco
5.0 Liter V8 EFI
-K&N Cold Air Intake
-Throttle Body Spacer
-Heavy Duty Alternator
-Hooker Headers
-Custom True Duals
E40D Transmission
3" Body Lift
-33x12.50's Pro-Comp All Terrains
-Mickey Thompson Wheels
