I don't have a press and have always used a vise to push the bearings out and in.

If you're real careful you can use sockets and a hammer, but you have to watch real close when you asssemble the new one not to knock the bearing rollers loose from the end caps. I actually had to replace a u-joint on my wrecker a while back under an interstate overpass with available tools on the truck. Press or vice is best, of course.
