Default 95 150 wheel bearing removal/hub assembly removal

I got a 95 f150 ext. 5.0 4x4. my front wheel bearings are bad so i went and got new one. my hub is chrome with 3 torx srews. never seen anything like it. i removed it and theres no snap rings at all. theres 6 slots so i went to the store and they didn't have anything big enough. never seen a hub like this. they couldn't even find one to special order. i even took them out and removed the hub cap to prove it. ive take 93 f150 hubs apart and its not the same so dont try and tell me it is. ive worked on hubs before but never one like this. how can i get it off or where to get the right 6 slotted socket at. its gotta be 2 13/16 spindle nut socket. maybe a 16th bigger or smaller thats it. its bigger then any i can find. and THERE IS NO SNAP RINGS AND YES IT IS STOCK

It's not a spindle socket. its a hub socket. I worked at a ford dealer for awhile and seen it. You should be able to find it. it's 1/2 inch drive, not sure on the exact size.

This is the socket you need. here is a link where you can purchase it or a local place can get it. It's part number QT1057

I have the same truck and thought I had the same problem. Afeter removing the lockout did you remove the retaining ring holding the second part of the lockout in place? It has a snap ring holding it in place even though it looks like you should use a 6 point spanner socket to remve it. the only large socket you need is a 4 point that is if you have a dana 44 front end.
