Default Re: Wheel-bearing "gravity" Install--for Real?....

It has to be pressed, and using the CORRECT arbors. No if's and's or but's about it. Installation is actually a TWO STEP process. The bearing is installed and is then subsequently properly supported / reinforced with the proper tool / arbor while the hub is installed into the knuckle. There simply is no other methodolgy that will work and have the assembly be correct and maintain a service life of more than a few thousand miles. (IF that)
