I have a Heckler 2008 that needs to suspension berarings been replaced for new ones.

I have not the SC extractor for it.

Is there some way to take off the bearings without damaging the frame?

Please tell me your experience.

They should pop right out :skep: However one of mine seized in place and exploded, so removal was much more difficult. So long as the bearing doesn't come apart you can just use a punch from the opposite side to tap it out.

Just used a large screwdriver and hammer and tapped around from the other side. Took a while of gentle tapping then a firmer hit and they flew out!

I got a mate to make a tool for pressing the new ones in and I would highly recommend either buying the one from SC or building something similar.
