    i did front ones with a vice, rears are pretty similar so it should be possible with some suitably sized drifts.

    Pretty much.

    The front ones didnt have any circlips and the bearings were VERY tight. They too a LOT of beating to get them out, and a lot of force to get them back in.

    You need a big socket and should only press on the outer race of the bearing, otherwise you'll wreck it, then support the inner race when pushing the hub back in.

    Well i did both front bearings, and all the front control arms, TRE's and ARB links, including having to drill out the pinch bolt on one side, in about 10 hrs, including stopping for lunch etc.

    It was the first time i'd done it though, and i wasted a lot of time working out the best way of doing things, and spent ages trying to unsieze the pinch bolt before finally drilling it out!
