Thomas, Scott is correct...you can leave the housing
attached to the car if you have a hub shark..or
 Erik Kissll sent me a file on how to make a home made
bearing puller..I'll send you the file cause I don't
think the link will post to the list??.

 You have to do that CV though...so maybe just takeing
the strut assembley out would be easier..then you
could have a shop press out the old & press in the
good one. Shouldn't cost you too much
$$$$....specially if you take the assembley out
yourself & bring it to a shop.
 But if you bring the car down intackt expect to be
charged round 3/4hrs..that would include the CV shaft
R&R cause you mine as well have them do that as well.
 But if you have the time & means to DIYS..then it
should be a great learning experience for you.
 Just if you do take the assembley out make sure you
have a prior appointment to a shop so they can press
out & in the bearing. Some shops who come recomended
are usually busy.....& bad shops are usually not as
busy...or something :-)
