bought some wheels

So I bought some new wheels for my Cougar. I was originally going to buy some black chrome FR500s but I came across a sweet deal on some 04 Mach 1 wheels, now I need to do a hub swap. I found some cobra rear hubs, but they come with the wheel bearing and abs ring. Do I need to have those removed, or can they be pressed into the knuckles as is?

Are you sure the hubs you found aren't fronts? There shouldn't be an ABS ring anywhere near the rear hubs and the bearing shouldn't be attached prior to assembly. The Cobras put the ABS rings next to the diff on the halfshafts, just like on the MN12s.

they were listed as rear. I haven't ordered them yet, so I will double check.

After some more research, it seems as though the lable of rear wheel bearing hub assembly lead me believe that it was the hub itself. But in reality, it's just the rear wheel bearing.
