I answered this somewhere once before.
Don't use a slide hammer that's a sure fire way of breaking the bearing and possible pulling your shoulder.
They have a special tool for these but imo its not needed.
Take the entire steering knuckle off the car, its pretty easy. 7 bolts on some models. Then have the hub pressed out of the bearing. Its a piece of cake from there.
I have all my guys at my shop do them this way and we have never broke a bearing and we do tons of these.
