I don?t have a bearing puller but I have access to a press. So I can press them out and press the new ones in? I haven?t taken it apart anymore yet but it looks like there is an inner sleeve that is separated into 3 pieces. Is this correct?

They are easy to take out. I use the rounded end of a 3/8 long extension to tap out the bearings from the opposite side of the wheel. If you run the extension on an angle you can feel the inner race edge of the opposite bearing and tap it out with a hammer. Rotate the extension around so you are pushing on the bearing as evenly as possible so it comes out of the hub straight. It helps if you warm up the hub with a heat gun or torch during removal and installation.

Do I need to grease all surfaces when installing the new bearings...the race and then the inner sleeve?

That looks kinda cool.

I do.

I just greased all mine at 40 hours. Most were reasonably well packed with grease from factory. I'm a fan of picking seals & greasing wheel bearings. Plus fill gap between seal & bearing face with grease to keep water/dirt out. Circlip easy to remove them just carefully pick seals & pack full of grease & work through bearing. Just my opinion.

I use a anchor bolt. Drop it in, tighten it and then tap it out from the other side. Seems to work pretty good so far..

The grease gun needles are available at most auto parts stores. Also they are sharp so try not to stab yourself :-)

I?m a little confused about how to do the rear wheel. There seems to be another sleeve that is inside the inner race... is this actually attached to the bearing or is it a separate peice? It appears to be 3 sections. One inside each bearing and then a spacer.
