Iím going to do it myself. If I get stuck i can take it over to a local shop. Getting it out was probably the harder part. Getting it back in will be fun as well.
Thanks for the input guys!

Iím inclined to do it myself and buy a few more tools to make it easier. Iíve got a hydraulic press (cheap harbor freight thing) so I just need a few attachments to press on the new bearing races. Itís all about learning how to do a new thing. Ford 8 inch, new to me, but not new to a lot of people here.

Thanks Carl,
Iím about to start putting it back together. I finally got the old bearings off the Powertrax LS unit. Didnít have the right bearing removal tool. Got the new bearings installed. So, weíll start putting it back together tomorrow.
