No. Did you run some emery cloth along the race (bearing surface) to make sure it was smooth and clean? If you leave any part of the old seal or debris on the hub surface, damage the seal when installing it, not liberally packing the bearing with grease or the seal did not seat right you can have issues like yours. Make sure the seal is installed flush and if everything looked good as far as the axle and surfaces, pack more grease in the bearing. When you think there is enough grease in it, put more in. Put the grease in the palm of your hand and with the bearing held flat in the other hand repeatedly tap the bearing on your palm until grease comes out both sides. Then put more on it when you seat it.

SOURCE: i just replaced the axle shaft seals in th e rear

When you say you can hear the bearings, I wonder what you are hearing. If it only started from doing the seals, I would go back in and see if something is rubbing. Bearings don't go bad quickly.

How do I change rear wheel bearings on my 1992 GMC Safari van


Put the rear up on jack stands and remove the wheels and brake drums. Then unbolt the rear differential cover and drain the gear oil. Then, you remove the pinion securing bolt. DO NOT ROTATE THE WHEELS AS THIS CAN CAUSE THE PINION GEARS TO FALL OUT. Push the rear axle shaft inward toward the vehicle and remove the "C" clip that secures the axle to the pinion gears. Then pull the axle shaft outward and out of the axle housing. Inspect the axle shaft for scuffing and excessive wear on the place where the wheel bearings rest. If there is excessive wear, you can use a "repair bearing", which is modified to install so it runs on an unworn part of the axle shaft. Otherwise a regular replacement bearing is fine. You need a slide hammer removal tool to extract the old bearing from the axle housing, and a bearing install tool to insert the new one without damage. Once the new bearing is in, reinsert the axle shaft, secure with the "C" clip, and pull outward to latch the "C" clip into its recess. Install the pinion bolt. Reinstall the differential cover with appropriate gasket or sealer. Fill differential with approved gear oil in the recommended amount. Ensure that if the rear is a positraction rear end there may be an additive required to the gear oil for proper operation.

How do i pull rear wheel bearings


Replacing outer wheel bearings on a solid axle rear end is a moderately involved operation.

The rear axle cover has to come off so that you can remove the C clips to allow the actual axle to come out. Once out, a bearing puller is needed to remove the old bearing, and a bearing installed may be needed to drive in the new one.

If this sounds out of your comfort zone, a shop should charge $200-$300 to make the repair.

do u mean the axle has "play" when u grab the tire and wiggle it up and down?? if it has play, then it propbably needs an AXLE SEAL AND AXLE BEARING.you will have to carefully inspect the axle itself where the bearing rides for any gouging or damage. THIS JOB requires a decent amount of mechanical skill. 1ST you need to remove the rear end COVER and drain out the gear oil into a drain pan.2ND remove the brake caliper and rotor . 3RD spin the" ring and pinion " around until u see a 5/16 bolt that passes thru from the pass. side to the drivers side. u have to remove this bolt. u will need to "hold "the gears from turning in order to break loose this bolt. 4TH remove this bolt and slide out the large metal ""PIN" that 'divides" the rear end in half. NOW CAREFULLY WITHOUT TURNING THE REAR END SPIDER GEARS,PUSH IN THE AXLE TOWARDS THE INSIDE SO U CAN REMOVE THE "C-CLIP" AT INNER END OF AXLE. now u can slide out axle and youll be able to replace seal and if needed axle bearing. let me know if u need more info.
