I just did this using OTC's Hub Grappler. I have to speculate about what it would take to make the HF kit work, even though I can see a picture of it online. Hopefully someone who knows the HF tool will chime in.
HF 66829 looks like a subset of the OTC kit, and lacks a "hub puller tool" I thought was necessary for getting the wheel hub off the steering knuckle. The tool is a cross bar that bears a J shaped jaw on each end. The tips of the jaws reach behind the hub and rest on the "circular bearing housing". The forcing screw fits through the eye in the cross bar, through the core of the hub (that the splined shaft of the CV joint fits into), and through the appropriate cylindrical adapter on the inner side of the hub, then the Nut.
Without a hub puller tool like that, the HF kit could work if it has a very large cylinder, large enough for the hug to fit through. Look in Bentley 774-7 to get an idea of how big.
=> If the HF kit lacks such a large cylinder, I don't think it will work.
Also, there must be some way for the steering knuckle to bear forcefully on this large cylinder. I haven't seen the Saab special tools. Either the Saab cylinder rests on the rotor shield (hmmm, it would get deformed?), or the Saab kit includes two thin half disks that mate to the cylinder, and which the circular bearing housing rests on.
