1987 951 Rear wheel bearings

Suspension

Vehicle Information: Model(924/944/968): 951, 951; Year: 1987; Body Type: Coupe; Total Mileage: 115K;

I need to replace the rear wheel bearings on my '87 951 (the right one is growling). Before I start tearing the rear end apart, can you tell me if I need to remove the trailing arm to complete the project, or can I press the new bearings into place on the car? Also, do I need any special tools to pull the old bearings and press the new ones in, or can I do it with standard tools (like a mallet and a 2x4)?
