I know it's too late but this will be for next time. Take the proper socket for the bolt and add a extension for a total length of 3-4 inches. Thread the bolts in about half way. Put the socket with extension on the bolt head, start the truck up and SLOWLY turn the steering wheel pressing the end of the extension on the axle tube. Work back and forth, switching which bolt your pressing on, basically pressing the hub out. Works every time.
