I am about to cheat doing this, I have a 20Ton Press with a driver kit, that will get the fookers out.

I got one of those supercheap presses, pretty small but should work ok for installing wheel bearings and other things.

Yeah its a the 6ton one, I just have it sitting on my work bench. It does the job but can be difficult with some things because it isn't very wide. For the price its worth it, they are always on special.

Yep, handy unit for most jobs and as you say, width is the only downfall, but hey, bang for buck Smile

@Mr B wrote:They nothing unusual it just as nissan wanted sell whole arm & R not a big seller the bj got over looked in patern parts rather than not being available from manufacturers. I seen a few people say about welding & few not. is really down to what joint you get & the brand too as the spec size differs a little thus the interference fit could be too low in worse case scenario. I found brands like delphi & 555japan & Moog K9633 with no knurling spline on the fit area far better interference tolerance over real cheap monkey metal brands .
Basically OEM arm bore is 38.0mm, due to hole deformation/stretch from re-use & clean up from corrosion you need joint around 38.2mm minimum for good interference, Delphi TC600=38.2mm, Moog K9633=39.2mm will work if ream bore out to 38.8, they have grease nipple, innovative boot & very good quality, FAI SS1163 should work as well but not used or measured them .

much prefer the bolt on lower joints over press fit but they not used much these days as it all going towards full arm :-/ done ones on 206 hdi today what a cock those arms are hidden in the subframe  with bolts from top with not enough room to fully lift bolts without hassle, f00king french engineers :-S can work easier on an R with one arm than 206 with 2 arm :-P

just wanna say, this is a 4 year old post but i found it very very useful..thanks!
