I need a diagram of the front like this. Guess I should just order the service manual. I wonder how quickly they get shipped out. I'm hoping to get some work done in less than 10 days before an event.

Here's a page from the Ford service manual.

I need to know which bolts to remove the front hub (and their torque values when putting it back on) so I can swap out the studs for ARP extended studs. I grabbed this picture...are the ones I circled in red with red arrows pointing at them the correct ones. I'm presuming there's a fourth hidden in this pic.

I exchanged my front studs without hub removal.

We got them done and almost thought we could do it without hub removal but weren't sure so we pulled the hubs. Ratcheting wrenches helped because the hub nuts were a bit of a pain as well.

Honestly, when you disassemble stuff like this, it generally makes the job easier and better.

This thread was useful when doing my coilover install for the spindle bolts and subrame. I won't lie and say that some of the "other" bolts just got however many ugga duggas my baby impact gave them.
