    The rose joint will need pressing out and the new one pressing in so hubs off, tie arms are straight forward...
    i would recommend doing the trailing arm bushes while you are at it...

    Planning on replacing mine in the spring. Any particular tools needed for the rose joints or can they be pressed in with a bench vice?

    you may be able to get it in a vice but the trick is getting it in square..
