Default Bruiser Bearing in front axle

I want to make sure i have this right before I do it.....In order to put bearings in the fornt axle of a Bruiser do I need to press the axle pin out? Or is there another way?

Yea you have to press is out carefully. Use two 3mm tamiya flange nuts placed, flanged to flanged, around the front axle pin. Then Press it out in a vice. This wont be enough to press it all the way out but you should be able to get it almost out and knock the rest out with a small pick of a thin nail of some sort. The course backing on the nuts will grab into the vice and it wont slide around. You can use the nuts again to press it back in then. Just take your time doing it. Think of it as doing u joints on a drive shaft. Hope this helps.
