That is a simpel job,the races drive right outand drive back in. Might beable to rent a race driver tool (what it is is a 18 inch long bar used for driving races out and in) If you can find a 16" drift or center punch it well work the sameway. If you have anymore ?? PM me.

Getting the old races out is not nearly as delicate as getting the new ones in. Just don't scar up the machined surfaces when you are hammering on the races. Like the other guys said, use a steel rod, drift, center punch or whatever. I use a 1995 Chevy truck tire tool. When you drive the new races in, just make sure that you keep them square as you drive them in. They should go in without too much trouble. I use the old race to drive the new race in. Insert the new race in the proper configuration, then place the old race on top of it in the same configuration. THen drive them in using a very large socket as a spreader, a block of hard wood or something. Then once you have the new race seated, use your drift to knock out the old race that is now partially inserted above the new one. It shouldn't take more than a whack or two to knock it out. The old race is a great way to make sure that you are driving the new race in squarely.

good luck
