Get a used hub with a good bearing.

What side do you need?

Make sure you get the PB Blaster out and start letting it soak. The long bottom bolt can be bad if it rusted to the arm bushings.

doesn't it matter if it's rear disc or drum brakes - swapping hubs you'll want to keep it the same right?

i saw your parts thread.

wow - melted boot lost brakes, almost caught on fire - that's intense!

i would definitely be scrapping that entire assembly and just starting over with another unit like you're doing and he said, good call.

If it got hot enough to fade the brakes, good chance you also warped the rotors and glazed the pads. I'd be replacing those and bleeding the burned brake fluid out.

There's about a 99% chance that bottom bolt is rusted and won't want to come out. Get your sawzall ready.
