Default Mcagughys spindle question on a 2011 GMC

Guy's I done one of theses on a 13 couple of years ago but I guess you flip the bearing around on the spindle and bolt it in from the outside ?, also is the bearing a pain to get out the old spindle, the ones I've changed came right out usually, not these, THANKS!

If it's the hub bearing assembly you will need a hammer to knock it off. If it's the same spindle I did you have to put a stud and not on the top and the rest should be the stock bolts.

That's it, but it comes in from the front and not the back with the new spindle ?

I'm thinking that the stud goes on the front side of the spindle and the two factory bolts go back threw the rear of spindle like stock if this makes sense.

Yes the stud from the front and the other 2 bolts from the back. So before you put the hub back on put the stud in first on the top from the front then put hub on. Then tighten the 2 bolts in the back and then put the nut on the stud and tighten.
