Default Rear Wheel Bearing/Hub Assembly Question

Alas, I cannot search! The damn image verification will not load so I'm sorry to ask this ridiculous question.

All I need to know is whether or not a press is required to replace the wheel bearing/hub assembly on the rear of a 2002 PT Cruiser with disc brakes. I'm guessing no but I don't want to tear both sides apart and be stuck. Also, is there really a difference in the hub assembly on a disc brake as opposed to a drum brake aside from the ABS tone ring? Just wondering because I want to order the cheapest part from Rock Auto but it doesn't specify disc or drum in the description.

Interesting story for you guys on this;

So the previous owner decided to torque the rear lug nuts so tight that it's not humanly possible to remove the lug nuts. I literally broke a lug nut in half on a stud (ever see this before!?). So I'm stuck torching one stud out and stripping the rest of the lugs because of how ridiculously tight these things are. So...I'm ready for a lot of mother f'n and probably a bottle of beer by the time these wheels are removed.

Simple tire install gone bad; just my luck! Needless to say the Cruiser is going up for sale once everything is fixed up nicely and long Cruiser.

Thanks guys!
