With a press. I just paid a shop to do it, they charged me an hour to remove and replace. Wasn't any special shop.

I took mine to a local driveshaft shop, he charged me $25 or $30 to take the old one off and put the new one (from Centerline) on. Money well spent.

Some people try to do it themselves, which is fine if you're up for the challenge. I brought mine to a repair shop - they had the tools and had the old one off and the new one on in about 15 minutes. Cost hardly anything.

Gary,
Do you have a 20 ton press?

Did it myself, just for the challenge. Not too bad a job. Exposed the bearing by cutting away the rubber (which was mostly split anyway) and removing the outer bracket. Ground three notches in the outer bearing shell then used a 3-arm gear puller. Installing the new one is easy with the right size piece of pipe and a hammer.
