Or you can buy a harbor freight 20 Ton press for $150 and a set of Koyo wheel bearings for $60 each (OEM supplier), a few seals for $5 each and do it for less and have a press for future projects at the end of the day.

I use my press more than I thought. Think about replacing the bearings on belt pulleys for $5 per bearing instead of $50 per pulley. So many times it would have cost me way more if I have to buy the complete assembly. My 20 ton press has paid for itself over and over again.

Haha. I too bought the 20 ton press from harbor freight years ago just to do my FJ's front wheel bearings (this was before anybody sold the pre-assembled ones). One of the best tool investments I've ever made. I have used it probably 200 times since, from bending metal, pressing bearings/races, seals, and bushings, etc. It's just so versatile.

Great information! I'm at 150k and noticing some front (vibration not from the tires). Check out the videos from 1AAUto.com They do some great FJ specific DIY videos and sell the parts and tools they use. I have nothing to do with this company except watching their vids.
