    its a bitch, they need to be pressed in and out. what i did is removed the knuckle and took it to a machine shop and had them remove and press in the new bearing.

    i went to buy the new bearing and they said i had to buy a complete hub assembly. it only cost like $100 but it wont go on. it's too small.

    i tried to put my old bearings that were on my drum brakes on and they were too small too. i think they ordered the part for a civic with drum brakes, but i just did a swap to discs. which car should i order them for?
