You can. Put a piece of plywood on concrete. Slam axle into ground while holding by backing plate.

Yup, this works great. Slam the shit out of it! Long piece of steel tube to beat the new bearings on works good for reassembling.

I've done the slam on concrete, then use a file on the splines a few times

I’ve tried concrete but due to road salt it started to mushroom the splines. Lets hope OP removes the circlips first.

I tried the redneck method. Pulled the clips and slammed it on a cutting board on the driveway. I couldn't tell it moved.

If parts are rusty or youre a pussy, this method will not work. Its pretty simple to build a jig.

Question: using the slam it on plywood method, does the bearing come off in one piece? Or does it tear the bearing apart and I will have to grind the inner race off?

It all comes out complete. Wear thick gloves and raise it above your head, then send it down hard! It takes a few hits, pb blaster helps

DO NOT use heat at all. It takes some effort sometimes. Set your purse down and use both hands.

On the last one I did I used a grinder to score the lock rings(yes rings, Bc itís a 97 4runner with ABS) and busted them with a chisel. It made disassembly a lot easier using the plywood method

Not a bad idea.

Slice the lock rings with a die grinder, smack slice with blunt chisel, ring will crack and slide off easily. Bearings will basically fall off with a few more taps on the block of wood. I've done dozens of rust belt Yotas using that method. I had access to a press every time, what I posted is faster.

To install, get pipe that fits around race and is long enough to go over the entire axle plus a few inches. Slide on bearing, slide pipe up and down to seat it, install new lock ring and use pipe and hammer to "press" it on. Easy peasy

If you dont have new lock rings, get some. Your not going to save them. Even when pressed off they tend to dig in to the shaft and gaul up and get stuck. When that happens, you have to cut them. Skip a step and save time.

It didnít work for me. It started chipping the concrete, I put card board down but it still wouldnít budge. So my friend and I built a sst. Do it, you wonít regret it. Itís just a piece of tube and plate.

I haven't been in here and ages and we're still talking about how to remove wheel bearings

Cut ring, split ring, glove up, toss that thing into the ground like your plowing that chick from high school. Just like that girl from high school, the harder you slam it the quicker its over
