Best Answer

Jack up the rear of the vehicle and put on jack stands. remove wheels and sparay around hubs with PB Blaster. If you have a self ajuster on your vehicle, it may need to be lossened. hit the hub s with a hammer to try to lossen them. If you have a rearwheel drive you can put a couple lug nuts back on and start your car. put it in gear and tap on the hubs with a hammer while they are moving. you may need two people. Turn off your car and pull them off.
