If you have a welder, just lay three spot welds evenly spaced around the race and it will fall out. Best trick I know.

Found this thread while doing some research in preparation for changing my steering bearings.

Literally took me 30 seconds each to get the races out of the frame.
ThumperTalk rocks!!!:ride:
