Default Anyone press is ther 80 series OME caster bushing without a press?

Dont have a press in my shop and am looking to swap the caster correction bushings on my truck. Have the slee tool and was wondering if anyone has done the old 2x4 and sledge hammer trick with success? Let me know, otherwise I may convince myself its time to add another tool.

Tried that trick on mine. Take it to a shop and have them use the press.
