I am going to rebuild my AX-5 myself and would like how many ton press do I need to R&R the bearings on my AX_5. I will be buying a Harbor Freight press I have limited space to store it but want a press that will do the job. They have a 6 ton, a 12 ton and a 20 ton.Which one will do what I want.

your going to probaby need a 12 ton press. from what I have gathered working in dealerships those gears are on there pretty tight and I believe that the 6 ton press would not be able to exert enough force for what you need. Also I work with a bunch of guys that are/were former Mopar and they say the same thing.

I didnt really think that a 6 ton would cut it, I just want to know that a 12 ton is enough. Thanks for your feedback
