I don't know what he typically uses, but he had to cut mine out. I think he normally would just press them out.

Don't quote me on this, but I think there's not much chance of removing bearings without damaging them. But bearings are rather cheap, check out Houston Bearing on I-10 for new ones.

Seems like you could just press the entire works out one side?

Oh, and #3 look like they are on the suspension pivot...

If you want to bring it over we can try on my 20 ton press.

I was talking about the forum mentioning using a 4 wheel drift, hole puller, or a hole punch...

Well, I just checked my manual, and on mine there is a step in the swingarm, and you have to use a slide hammer to remove them; can't press all the way thru the swingarm. Guess we better make sure on yours before we try it.

Do you have a shop manual?

No, some flooding destroyed it.

Found one site that said they knocked them out with a long screwdriver.

Looking at that pic you posted, "seems" like it would push thru.. wish we had an empty swingarm to look at.

Your call, I'm game to try whatever.

got a long screw driver? haha

If the press doesn't work, or the screw driver, I'll probably just cut them out and get new.

For future reference, use a deep well socket and the stock spacer, and press the opposite bearing out. Then flip over swingarm, inseret spacer and socket, and press out bearing.

For the suspension link bearings, I had to modify an old flathead screwdriver with about a 30-45 degree bend, inch from the tip. That enabled us to catch the edge of the bearing and drive it out with a BFH.

Pivot bearings looked fine, shock bearings are junk due to removal.
