This is how I prefer to press out U-joints. I don't have a bearing press yet, but you don't have to have one to do this. There are many ways to do this job, and some work better than others. Each method comes with a different set of advantages and disadvantages; however, I am from the school that teaches not to beat on your driveshaft with a hammer.

I've seen so many people banging and pounding on their u-joints with a hammer and to me it just doesn't make any sense. I really don't believe that's the best way to do it. Maybe they like the sound of banging on steel pipes? Maybe they hate their neighbors? Maybe they just can't shake a certain ex girlfriend from their thoughts and it brings them some relief? I say, why risk damaging the saddles and ruining the part? Why bang on a brand new universal joint with 4 sets of needle bearings in it? To save time? I refuse to beat on my driveshaft. So you're going to see a different method than the mainstream. If you can press it out, why on earth would you bang on it if you have other tools that can do a better job.

Since the 2-jaw puller is needed to do other parts of this job, might as well put 'er to good use and get 'er done.
