Yeah, I've got a dial indicator and magnetic mount on order for checking backlash. I don't have a press, but the bearings themselves (if I'm talking about the part correctly) are held in by c-clips. The axles/splines can be removed via slidehammer. If I need a press for the bearings on the diff, I've got access to one, but I think I can work up something.
