Default Wheel hub assembly question

I was planning on getting new bearings for the rear on the ES300. I came across this listing online for a 'wheel hub assembly' for the same year vehicle.

Now when I had my toyota a while back, I had installed a new wheel hub assembly in the rear and it did not require any fancy 'press' or special tools. I was told that installing the bearings on the lexus required a press and was best left to a shop.

Is this true? Is this not a complete bolt-on solution? I'm adding a picture of the component for sale below. Will I be able to do the swap easily or rather is this a bolt on solution that already has the bearings 'pressed' on?

As always, thank you for the suggestions you guys send my way.

The rear wheel bearing assembly from Lexus comes with hub and studs and it's bolt on. You don't have to use the press. The picture above shows the aftermarket rear wheel bearing. It is cheaper on part, but require hydraulic press and the shop labor to do it. So, you don't save any money at all.

Thanks VVT-I, thats what I felt when I first saw this part. I remember working on the toyota a while back and it was a much larger bolt-on component that didn't give me any trouble. So I should just swing by Lexus and order it in - is it the same part as the camry for my 97 ES? Any idea what it would set me back? At this point I'm just looking at a rough estimate.

You can ask for the part# when call Lexus parts dept and then call Toyota to compare the part#. I think the 96-97 V6 Camry may work.
