the outer bearings can be driven in using a suitable Very Large socket. Removing the old ones either requires a puller or a cutting torch. I use either depending on the state of the bearings.
when driving new ones in, make sure
I charge about $140 plus parts

There is no torque specs,this nut has to be tightened back like it was ,the best thing to do,was,to late now,is to use a torque wrench to remove the nut,and remember the torque,and when replacing it,torque it back to that spec,the reason being,there is a crush sleeve between the front pion bearing ,and the rear pinion bearing,and it has to be crushed to a certain amount,to aquire deepness into the ring gear,anyway just give it about 25 lbs torque,any more the crush sleeve will crush even more and the deepness of the pinion will be too much.

Yes...You need to also remove the cross shaft for the spider gears (retained by either a bolt or drift pin) and then push the axle inward to remove the "c" clip on the end.
It isn't difficult but you may want to get yourself a haynes or chiltons manual to help a bit.You need to take care that after the cross shaft is out that you don't let the spider gears walk out of the housing.
