Sockets and a vice. Or sockets and a rubber mallet.

Sockets and a vice aren't going to get it. What are you going to clamp that vice to? I've been down the bearing replacement road. You need a bearing driver set if you want to be assured that the job will, and has been done right. You start beating on your wheel with what ever you have laying around and you're asking for trouble. I had the mechanic at work, a pro, install mine. He has the proper tools and know-how to do it right. If you don't posess the know how, at least get the right tools.

If I wanted a bearing driver set, which I don't because I wouldn't get my moneys worth out of it, Id check Sears, then maybe Northern Hydralics, or Snap-On or a Mac dealer.

And be sure to greasd the inner hub and outer bearing surface before you start driving that bearing in because it it a TIGHT fit.

I've got a complete set of bearing removal tools from Motion Pro. Used them many times to remove wheel bearings:

They also have a tool to install swingarm bearings.

Bearing install is usually easy. Put the bearing in the freezer overnight. Heat the part the bearing is going in. Using the old bearing, place it on top of the new one and drive it in. Just make sure you're putting pressure on the outside race only, and that you get it started straight. I've changed numerous wheel bearings this way and it's quite easy. If I was going to do a swingarm bearing I'd probably use the same method, or the vise method. Or you could buy the Motion Pro or similar swingarm tool.

It looks like it would be pretty easy to make with all thread rod, bolts and some washers. A hardened bolt would probably work better without fear of stripping the threads.

This is true... but I found a light duty shop press for cheap, so I am in the lookout for the driver set as noted... I never thought sourcing out the bearing driver set with a pilot style of design would be so hard...

Checked with snapon, mac, grey and other tool manufactures and nothing.. very odd..
