I recently did the bearings on my 83 URQ. The fronts were done on a friends
press, while the rears were done at a (different) friend's (pro wrench) shop.
The fronts were a struggle as we didn't have the right size dyes and had to
improvise. Don't misread that, I'm still _very_ grateful for the use of the
press. Thanks again Dave!
The rears were done in a shop where there was a press but we used a
(commercial duty version) tool like the Harbor Freight above. I cannot verify that the
HF model has the right size bushings, but it would get my vote. With the press
the bearing had a real penchant for misbehaving and not going in straight.
The HF sort of tool works amazingly well for removal _and_ installation.
My rear struts were off the car already, but would not have needed to be. HTH
