I dont know about "drop right in" LOL i just replaced one wheel bearing in the front last night and I had the bearing frozen and the hub heated.  Still a 3lb sledge was needed to get it in.  I had to use that same 3lb sledge and a steel punch and swing that thing for about 40 min to drive the old one out.  A brass punch would have been a small ball of goo at that point.
You know....Harbor Freight has some small and not to expensive presses...save that arm! :)

But how would I get my workout in?!?!?!? LOL   I know.  I have a press but it was in another barn that was about 1/4 mile away and I kept thinking "surely its about out of there" LOL.  I have 3 more to do and I will go over to the other barn and use the press for those

I can imagine a world completely at peace.  A world where there are no weapons, no war, and no violence at all.  And I can imagine us taking over that world because they would never expect it.

Here is a quick video I took last night demonstrating how easy it is to install a wheel bearing by heating and freezing.  I don't mess around with a press or bearing driver unless its absolutely necessary.  I gave it a few taps with a drift pin after it dropped in to confirm it was shouldered properly.  I cool the whole assembly down with compressed air for a few minutes after installation.

Not to drag up an old post, but I change my two rears last week in the 2016 800Z and it went went smooth as butter. I used the bearing listed in this video and threw them in the freezer overnight. I pressed the old ones out with a shop press. The new ones dropped right in after a little heat. I places the hubs in a pan of water after to cool them down as I was afraid the heat might have been too much. Worked slick.
Here is the video link...
