I'm getting ready to do this (for the first time) and intend to use a hydraulic shop press to: 1) press the stem out of the lower tree to get the bearing off and 2) press the new bearing onto the stem. Has anyone here pressed the steering stem out of and back into the lower tree or seen it done? I'm really wanting to be sure that I press it in the correct direction (pressure on the top of the stem to push it down out of the bottom of the tree, is that right?), and to use the best methods to minimize the possibility of any problems. Any tips or suggestions would be most appreciated.
