Question about 1996 Chevrolet C1500
1996 C1500 2 wheel drive
U must remove the axles, to do this pull the diff cover off, then remove the pin that retains the large center pin that is between the spider gears, pull the axles out far enough to clear diff carrier, remove left and right carrier bearing caps, mark the adjustment sims and caps (very important) as to which side they came from, u will most likely need to have a press to remove and install the new carrier bearings, they are pressed on, when u reinstall put the shims back in with a brass hammer or large brass drift punch, they are cast iron and break very easily, make sure to use the proper gear lube, do not overfill, also replace the axle seals and check the axle bearings for wear, I will bet they are worn out as well, the rule really is that if one bearing goes south then the metal from that will ruin the rest of the bearings, in the shop we recommend all differential bearings be done, if not we can't guarantee the job.
