The answer is no. I have changed mine twice in the last six months. All you do is use a large socket to tap the bearing back into the tube. Be sure to make sure the bearing goes in straight and tap squarely on the socket. Make sure your bearing doesn't go in at an angle. If you haven't removed the old bearing yet, you will need a removal tool that looks like a dent puller. These can be rented at Advance Auto.
