My Bird has 54k on the ticker. I am thinking about a hubswap, and have a question about the rear bearing. When I have the hub pressed out, can I just have the new cobra hub pressed in and leave the wheel bearing as is? Only 54k, I'd rather not replace them unless I have, but also I don't want the thing falling apart on the highway. Is it okay to keep the bearing as is?

I don't believe you should reuse one after you remove it; the removal process does not support the bearing real well.

I didn't plan on removing the bearing, just the old hub, and then inserting a new hub. Bearing would stay put in the knuckle the entire time.

Once you disturb this part its best to replace the bearing if doing a hubswap.
