hub swap???

I'm considering looking into doing the hub swap cuz i really want 15'' cragar ss' on my car. What exactly would i be lookin at in regards to the hub swap? Is it something that can be done pretty simply? Is it expensive? Is it hard to do, as in, would i have to take it somewhere or is it something that i could do my self ?

buying new parts from ford it will be around $600, used parts can cost roughly half and you'll get what you pay for (though, count on the rear hubs costing at least $200 for the pair used) if you have the right tools its easy, IIRC you'll need a 36mm socket for the hub nuts and a torque wrench that can go to 250 ft/lbs, and to do the rears you'll need a press to remove/install the hubs and bearings from the knuckles.

check the offset on the cragar ss's, more than likely they wont fit our cars right, especially in that size.
