Anyone think a hydraulic press useful on these cars?

Recommended Posts

I bought a 20 ton from HF for the wheel bearings on my last car and I'm always trying to make space in my garage. 

Has anyone ever had to use one on these cars? I don't want to sell it then I find out I need it...

I ordered the floating rear end from Shaun..... I guess i don't need it. I'll list it for sale.

Need one?  You always give me crap when I forget to tell you first ha ha ha

You probably already have a 40ton by the way your shop looks

When I first got the press I was having a little fun with my younger son by crushing some little stuff like a water bottle plastic cap, a folded up shoelace and a small screw I think. I asked something about the press on the garage journal site and I posted how my son and i were having some fun with it and big mistake.  

Those people don't have a sense of humor and were practically throwing stones for saying that... That's not a toy, you can get seriously hurt and so on.  

Very helpful site but damn...

I use to go to the the parts store to press bearing on and off. None of the places I called have presses anymore. A couple of them don’t turn drums/rotors either.  My neighbors hf press wasn’t tall enough to press them off. I found a 4x4 shop that would do it. Fortunately it’s not something I will probably ever need again.
