Default Front bearing/hub as assembly?

Has anyone found a source for front hub with the bearing already installed? I need to do both my PT's soon and no access to a press most of the time when I'm actually able to work on the car. It would be so much easier if the fronts were sold as an assy.

You mean the entire knuckle?

Forget whatever I had posted here.

The hub is very easy to remove, it pounds out w/ a large socket.
Use a punch to remove the outer race, dremel to slice the inner race off hub.
(see far right hub ("95") in attachment, disregard labels)
You can make your own 'press' with threaded rod and large nuts/washers from McMaster Carr. Works very well, is more user friendly than a press, can be used in the field.

I would LOVE to find the steering knuckle with bearing already in place. Man that would save so much time. Plus with practically nothing open on saturday...
