Clearly I have not used the Hub Shark.
Thanks for setting me straight.
I am curious how you could do it without removing the tie rod? How do you get
the axle out of the hub?
Anyway - I have removed my struts - and it was no big deal. It to me is one of
those cases where you take out a few extra bolts and do the axle service and
whatever else makes sense.
