Need to install a carrier bearing or center support bearing for the purists, and was wondering if anyone might know a homemade way to do it. Everything I've found so far says that I would need to have this pressed on at a driveshaft shop. I'm thinking there has to be someone who came up with some tried and true method for doing this yourself. It's going on an 05 Silverado Extcab 2wd. thanks in advance for any advice.

They do need to be pressed off. I use a 40ton press at my shop to do it. To put them back on you can tap them down with a hammer and drift. Theres also a locking ring that presses on to help keep it in place.
