    And then pressing in the new bearing and hub. (Not the same knuckle, this one was from last week)

    Please note that I don't use the knuckle support shown in my last post while pressing in the hub. It's very important to support the inner race of the bearing when pressing in the new hub. Some shops don't do it correctly, and even the diagram in the factory service manual incorrectly shows supporting the knuckle using the special tool, instead of the bearing.

            One way to support the bearing when installing the hub is to use the old bearing as the support since it fits perfect. It is obviously not tall enough by itself so some other stuff needs to be stacked under it.

              You only want to support the inner race, not the entire bearing, and the snap ring would prevent you from using a complete old bearing. I guess you could take one apart and just use the inner race as support, but that's quite a bit of trouble. I use some Rotunda Special tools that are the same OD as the inner race.
