Wheel hub removal help needed

Hi gang,

I want to pull he 5 bolt wheel hubs off a '83 5kT in the wrecking yard
tommorrow.  I've already removed the axle nuts and rotors.  Assuming I
press out the halfshaft, whats a good way to remove the hub itself?  Saving
the wheel bearings is NOT a must, I'm after the hubs only.  Right now I'm
thinking to knock out the hub with a bushing driver from the back side of
the strut.  Any thoughts good or bad?
