Default front wheel bearings

im getting alot of different proceedures on how to change/service the front wheel bearings...

are they the kinda bearings you can re-pack with bearing grease and pop them back in? one of the front wheels is missing the dust cap.. so i imagine the bearing dried out... so anyithing i should know before i jack it up tommaro ?

it's a sealed unit that needs to be pressed out. they never need greased.

if you have a torch take off the spindle and heat up the bearing. you then take out the snap ring and smack the old bearing out with a hammer. then clean out the spindle make sure there isnt any dirt or anything in there. then place new bearing in the spindle. and take a socket and slowly and carefully tap the new on back in place while spindle is hot. do not heat new bearing. thats how we did mine. and when bearing is all the way in put snap ring back in place. takes about an hour.
