2005 Chevy Equinox IT 2WD. Front hub berring assembly is frozen and I can't get it off. Tried 5 ton pulley but didn't work. Suggestions?

I'm guessing you are dealing with a lot of rust?

One trick I have used on stuck hubs, is to start the bolts into the hub with a few threads, then put a deep socket with an extension on the bolt and have someone start up the engine and turn the steering wheel until the extension hits the frame and then just use the p/s pump as a press. On the real tight ones you have to go back & forth and kinda "walk it out". You'll hear it "pop" and then you just go to the other side until it "pops". You probably want to carefully pinch off the brk hoses so there is no problems with the brks if the pedal gets stepped on by accident.

It goes with out saying but obviously you drown the assembly in PB Blaster (penetrating oil)
