    you ne a press to get them out. I am assuming you don't have one. Take them off the car and go down to your local brake/alignment/suspension guy and tell him you need the press out. Also they need to press the new ones in. Its not something you can do with regular hand tools.

    Ok, thanks. Your sure that for 1997 models you need the press. Because i've been told that not all models have the press bearings?

    Wich models dont have press bearing?

    I have an Ef and I know EG's are the same. as far as anything after 96...not sure. call honda and ask them for a replacement bearing. If they want to sell you the whole trailing arm, then you know they are press fit.
