Easy is a relative term. The origionals were riveted in. You either grind, 
chisel, or torch them off. The new ones bolt in.
The lowers can be pressed out, though it's not easy. Most folks just bust 
them out with a BFH.
The removal of the stem from the knuckle is usually accomplished with a 
forked tool called a 'pickle fork'.
