Please see Questions and Answers for some topics that frequently appear on this board. As you can see, this board loads rather slowly. If you are posting something for sale, please remember to include your location since someone who might otherwise be interested might not be able to use a part or a vehicle that is too far away. Posting your location when you're selling something that needs to be hauled will save everyone's time (and reduce the number of posts on this already too-slow message board). Thanks.

What you have run into is common as some don't have the socket and are too cheap to buy one, so they use a screwdirver or chilse to to put the big nuts on and off. Since yours are already bent try using this method as a way to get the nots off. Using a screwdriver and a hammer you should be able ot back out the nuts. If they are too tight then the wheel would not turn and since they are covered with greese they should back right out. If you don't uderstand what I mean maby someone else can explain it better. No question you now have bad wheel cyls and I suggest you get new one and not try to re-build the old ones. I like some here have taken short cuts when working on things but some areas their is substute for the correct tool. Do your self a favor and don't use the old nuts/washer and get new ones their cheap. I know all this cheap stuff add up. Bill
