Default Quick HELP....Hub removal!

In the middle of installing the Stillen brake cooling kit. I was an easy task until I tried to take the front hub off. Removed all four bolts and can't get her to budge.

Any suggestions? What do I need to pull this thing out?

Thanks.

Been there. Trying a slide hammer but the blind hole fitting won't stay in the hub hole. Can I use a flange adapter connected to the wheel studs or will it damage the bearing?

Ended up threading a big bolt onto the end of the slide hammer to seat on the back of the hub. Hammered them out without issue. Here's to slide hammers and PB Blaster!
