Default Wheel hubs 99 Silverado 4x4

Hi, I am in a pickel I need to change both of my front wheel hubs and the bolts on the hubs are rusted very badly. I was thinking I could grind the hub In three spots and punch the bolts out will this works? As for the dust shields are rotted off. So getting a grinder in there is no problem.

LOL no you can't punch bolts out.
Try an impact wrench, soaking with lube, heat...



(No need to double post by the way)

Yes it worked fine by grinding the hub where the bolts are. I mean where they screw into the hub grinded there. As the bolt heads there so rotted they where almost like rivets lol
