I am getting ready to do a REAR wheel bearing replacement, on my 2000 Chevy SilveradoZ71 4X4. From what I have been able to gather, the front is a hub replacement, the rear is a bearing. Can anyone provide me some info on how to? Do I need to remove the axel?
Thanks in advance for your help

Front bearing hubs are pretty easy since they are a single unit; the rear is just he bearing which has to be pressed out of the hub and then the new bearing presed back in. For my money and time I would take it to a local shop, unless you have a press etc.

Don't worry man I feel your pain. My rear bearing is so bad oil is leaking all over the driveway from it. But the problem is that we were in the process of changing it. We got as far as taking the pin out of the rear diff. so we could take the axle out, well we found out that the screw holding the pin in, was broke in half. We cant get it out so now we got to get a new back axle. =] which is good for me, im not paying for it, lol my dad is.
