You should spend the $40 or so on the Snap-On hub removal tool - DHP1. How to use the tool isn't very obvious but I can tell you in a PM. I just did this last year and I bet this tool saved me 2 or 3 hours of beating the snot out of the hubs on my 04. The axles more or less slide out after the hub is out of the way. You should think about replacing the ball joints while you have it apart - they don't seem to last long either. If you have all the tools you need it's probably about a 5 or 6 hour job including the ball joints.
