    I asked in one of my other posts but didn't get stright response. Do I just knock them out with a screwdriver and a hammer? Now I dont mean the wheel bearings, but the small little bearings that the stub shaft rides on. If someone could help me because I dont just wanna bat the hell out of it (which is what I think I'm gonna have to do) Thanks

    Just knock the bearing out by sticking a screwdriver or punch of some sort thru the spindle and onto the back side of the bearing...Couple whacks with the hammer and it'll pop out.

    Yup, pound away. Once you get 'em moving they should come right out.
