YJ universal joints

I have a question regarding front universal joints in the axle. Do they need to be mechanically pressed in or not. Any help would be appreciated.

What do you mean by mechanically pressed in? They are press fit but a c clamp, vise, or shop press can get them done. Nothing Fancy needed.
