Have you got a press ????....or press dollies to do it ????
If not, then remove the stub axles and take them to a mechanical repair joint that does it.

As said above. Got mine done not long ago. Was not far from $200 including the part for a work shop to do it. There is a bit involved and was worth paying for as the workshop has all the equipment and no headaches :|
