Removing bearings without a press..

Hey all,

I was wondering how to remove bearings off of the old hub assemblies on my 1995 dodge avenger. I bought some timken bearings today and i thought that they were the whole assembly and not just the bearings. I would have bought the other assemblies but they are 40 dollars more a piece so, if i could, i would like to remove them if i can. I dont have access to a hydraulic press, so any tips or tricks would be great

Thanks ,

Ben

Well, don't know if you have contact in a machine shop or not, but I went to the shop I always do business with with my Hub assembly and the new bearing, and they gladly press em out and your new ones in for a few bucks. Might wanna try the local machine shop for that, I wouldn't think they'd charge more than the 40$ each so you would still save over the assembled ones...

My bits.
