Hub/Bearing

I just bought some 92 SC front hubs. I got them cuz as i understand it they will allow me to run a 9 inch wide rim up front with 45s on them. Only problem is the bearings are going. Now i know these are sealed units but i know there is a way to replace the bearinbg with a press but is there any other way?

I think it's because of the spindle

The hub/bearing assembly is separate from the spindle.

ok been thru this before, the hubs are the same. they list different numbers for 89-90 , but the the 91-97 hubs are all the same number. and actually you can use the 91-97 hub on the 89-90 car, the spindles are the same from 1989 to 1992 , 93 up use the mark spindles. the bearing is not repalceable seperate either you have to buy a new hub.

I've actually heard a couple different stories about the bearings. Some people say you can remove and replace, some say no. You certainly can't buy the bearings separately from Ford. I don't know how to do it either way, but I have heard it's possible.
