Depends on the size of the bearing, enough to cover the entire bearing with space to move. if you can't drop a ball in the bearing, that will be count.

What to do if throw out bearing is stuck

You could try soaking it with WD40 then heating the bearing and tapping on it around the edged to free it. Other option would be to use a dremel tool and cut the outer race in half. Once it separates remove the outer race, ball cage and balls then use a gear puller to remove the inner race from the shaft.

1986 cj7 unstable steering with wide tires

Check your lower and upper control arm ball joints as well as the tie rod ends. Also make sure your wheel lugs are tight. Also make sure front hubs are in the free position when operating on the street. If the Jeep has a straight axel, check the king pin bushings at the steering knuckles.
