A BMW Tech told me to use an Airhammer

Which I did. Reverse the nut to the end of the spindle but leave it on and make sure it completely covers the threads. I think i used a modified jig(the "ball end" of a 3\8 CRAFTSMAN ratchet held againts the end on the spindle while applying pressure via the air hammer) to also aide in preventing damage to the threads. Be very VERY careful, .....F- Up those threads and you're screwed. Find a machine shop and have the new bearings pressed in. While their off you might as well replace the 'notorious" linkage(One of the 5 rear links is notorious for needing to be replaced ~100K mi...)
