My 2001 front passenger wheel failed inspection. I have the bolts out but the hub is rusted in the knuckle. Any tricks to getting it out? Any recommendations for a replacement? Rock auto has timken on sale.

Heat the knuckle, hit on the side of the triangle shape near one of the points with a good handheld sledge/wedge hammer/ball peen. Should spin slightly. Get it spun to where you can put the bolts back in the holes, put a 14mm socket or wrench over the ends of em, hit them with the hammer. She'll come out.
