No matter how you replace that wheel bearing the axle shaft needs to come out. If you use a hub tamer (the tool that allows you to do it on car) you still have to separate the knuckle from somewhere to get the axle shaft out. The advantage for the hub tamer is you don't separate the knuckle at the strut so camber should not change during the repair. That means you have to separate it at the lower ball joint to get the axle out of the way to get the tool in to press the bearing out and back in. Shop one is either lying of they found a magical way of making axle shafts dissappear. They probably change spark plugs through the exhaust tailpipe also.
