Well the only one we had access to was a 20 ton press down one. One thing I've always done is place a little grease on the mating surfaces such as say the bearing outer and hub inner to prevent so much pressure and friction when pressing items. Even with a little grease you'll hear some popping as the hub gets passed the inner and outer races of the bearing.

Edited the part of the write-up with big red letters where I removed the CV bands and boots. This step is not necessary and was done only because I need to change out the grease . D_REX (TXIC) recommened the edit to prevent a first timer from thinking this was a necessary step.
