we just did this at 132000 miles.they should be pressed out (and new ones back in) but found, after getting a quote to have the work done at a shop (nearly 900.00!)that we purchased the parts AND a press to do it ourselves still saving 450.00 after all was said & done! took my husband and son about three hours with the added bonus of having added a press to their tool collection! time is money, we are well aware as we are trades people, and this was a deal no matter how you slice it!
