Depends on your press!    A 10-ton shop press would probably do it OK once you have the hub removed.    I have a 10 and a 30, and I've used both for axle bearing jobs.

EFI kit still exceeding expectations. Im heading on a long road trip to MI tomorrow and one of the days Im there we are going to check out Silver Lake Sand Dunes. Going to take the eagle even though I know it will be worthless on the hills with the 2.35 gearing I can at least roll around the shoreline and check out some of the rigs out there. Some crazy stuff the weekend of the 4th.

I did a little more work to the eagle.
roof mount for the spare but not the biggest fan of it up there I found out so in the trunk for now.

added electric fans, a suprisingly noticable gain in engine performance, stays cooler in traffic and stand still also

Hood louvers, took some guts to make the first cut and not sure if Ill regret it yet but there they are.

Alrighty.  Looks like it's basically a D30 setup from what I have read.  BUT, with those end hubs that I need to remove.  Going to see if I can weld up a puller using a bottle jack for them.  Also, is it possible to press on the axle bearings at home?  Or will I need to locate a machine shop for this?

Its much easier to get the hub off while the axle is still in the car (using a big 'ol hub puller).   Hope you don't have the dreaded Eagle busted right axle issue!
Anyone know where I can by the louvered rear glass covers and louvered rear side window covers for my 1983 sx/4?   I'm sure they are not cheap but I really want a set.

Welcome, diskman. It's been quite a while since I pulled an axle, so I'm going from memory and happened to be talking to AMarshall about this a few days ago.

Remove wheel, drum and brake parts.
Remove four nuts holding axle retainer plate in place.
You should now be able to pull the axle out. You might need to use some persuasion like a slide hammer if it's stuck.
You will have to get the axle bearing removed and the new one pressed on. There is a seal on the retainer and also an inner seal, if I recall. If so, the axle bearing needs to be packed with grease.

I have a slight grinding coming from the rear end of my 83 wagon.  My finely tuned 50 year old ears say its the outer axle bearings.  Is there a how-to on replacing them anywhere?  I also have a weeping seal on the right side rear that I will fix while in there.  Also probably replace all the brake hardware too.

I've done that procedure before but I 've always had more working room. The yoke doesn't leave much room and the last thing I want to do is touch that shaft. I ordered a torque multiplier - used but still not cheap. I'll still need an adapter but they are available.
might be easier to try to fix what you have, so don't throw it out just in case you can't find a replacement
I deceided I am going to try the vinyl dye method. I will go get a few more armrests with the surrounds for the reflectors on them at the junkyard and then try dyeing those. I want to keep the entire interior color as black. I did buy the maroon sport steering wheel so I guess I'll just have to sell that now, at least I have the horn button for it so it should be easier to sell. In other news I was pushing the car back in the garage due to a sudden severe storm in which hail was predicted. The car got away from me and hit something in the garage and sheared the entire side of the driver side spoiler. So now I need to find another one.
