Succesful front wheel bearing replace

wheel bearings needed replacing but was reluctant to do so until i purchased fred harmons dvds. Only setback was not having a bearing puller. Improvised using a lag bolt and collar to exspand inside of the bearings. Didnt work. Second attempt was a exspandable anchor bolt. Was able to get it nice and snug inside the bearing. Put a socket and extention thru the other side and able to knock the bearings out. New bearings were in within ten minutes. The were quite frigid so went in quite easily when hit with the hammer and 32mm socket that fit perfectly on the outer ring of bearing. Only extra cost beside the bearing was the four dollar anchor bolt.
