I think Harold from HPA rents the tool out.

Really all you really need is a wheel bearing on the car press/tool. Its basically a big threaded rod with BIG metal washers that will push/or pull the wheel bearing(or bushing in our case) out of the mounting hole. I think it would be possible to "make" your own tool up.

I would like to find a source of these too. Renting is such a pain when I only have limited time to get into auto skills. If we find one locally maybe we could share.

I need to do the same since i've had my SFB's sitting at the house for over a month now. How much did you pay to get them done David? I know Justin and I were thinking of pitching in and renting it out, or possibly see if we could work out a deal with HPA to rent it out for a bit longer than 2 weeks and knock out more cars.
