SOURCE: I have a 1998 chevy

There pretty easy. You'll need a 34 or 36mm axle nut socket, a torque wrench, and a basic set of tools.

The hardest part will be removing the axle nut. once that is off you remove the caliper and rotor. I like to remove the outer tie rod from the knuckle so I can swing the axle back and forth to get at the wheel bearing bolts. this can be done by removing the not from the outer tie rod and hitting the part of the knuckle th tie rod goes through without hitting the tie rod so you don't damage it. After a couple of hits it will pop out.

Unplug the ABS sensor (if equipped). remove the three bolts holding the bearing to the knuckle, usually a 13 0r 15 mm socket and a swivel may help.

Once the bolts are out the bearing will come out. They can be frozen into the hub a little so you may have to get a little aggressive with a hammer to get it out.

make sure you note the position of the metal bracket behind the bearing (if equipped) and how the ABS harness is positioned (if equipped) it is important those go back the same way.

It is also vitally important to torque the axle nut to the proper spec after the new bearing is installed. Failure to do so will result in the new bearing failing prematurely. Cheaper isn't always better so get a good quality bearing.

heres some pictures to help. They are from a venture but very simular to a cavalier or any GM.

Check this prcedure for GM truck about Front Hub, Rotor and Bearings - REMOVAL & INSTALLATION

  1. Raise and support the front end on jackstands.
  2. Remove the wheel.
  3. Dismount the caliper and wire it out of the way.
  4. Pry out the grease cap, remove the cotter pin, spindle nut, and washer.
  5. Remove the hub. Do not drop the wheel bearings.
  6. Remove the outer roller bearing assembly from the hub. The inner bearing assembly will remain in the hub and may be removed after prying out the inner seal. Discard the seal.
  7. Using a hammer and drift, remove the bearing races from the hub. They are driven out from the inside out.
To install:
  1. Clean all parts in a non-flammable solvent and let them air dry. Never spin-dry a bearing with compressed air! Check for excessive wear and damage.
  2. When installing new races, make sure that they are not cocked and that they are fully seated against the hub shoulder.
  3. Pack both wheel bearings using high melting point wheel bearing grease for disc brakes. Ordinary grease will melt and ooze out ruining the pads. Bearings should be packed using a cone-type wheel bearing greaser tool. If one is not available they may be packed by hand. Place a healthy glob of grease in the palm of one hand and force the edge of the bearing into it so that the grease fills the bearing. Do this until the whole bearing is packed.
  4. Place the inner bearing in the hub and install a new inner seal, making sure that the seal flange faces the bearing race.
  5. Carefully install the wheel hub over the spindle.
  6. Using your hands, firmly press the outer bearing into the hub. Install the spindle washer and nut.
  7. Spin the wheel hub by hand and tighten the nut until it is just snug-12 ft. lbs. (16 Nm). Back off the nut until it is loose, then tighten it finger tight. Loosen the nut until either hole in the spindle lines up with a slot in the nut and insert a new cotter pin. There should be 0.0012-0.005 in. (0.03-0.13mm) end-play on R-series and 0.001-0.008 in. (0.025-0.200mm) end-play on C-series. This can be measured with a dial indicator, if you wish.
  8. Replace the dust cap, wheel and tire.

SOURCE: how do i remove a front axel on 1999 s10 chevy

You have to remove the differential cover by removing the bolts, draining the fluid then you have to turn the wheels so you bring the opening of the carrier inside to face you. then you have to remove the big pin that goes through the middle by removing the locking bolt then pushing the pin out. Once the pin is removed you push the axle in then remove the C clip from the end of the axle in the Diff case and then you can pull the axle out. Sounds complicated but it is really easy an amatuer can do this very easily.

There is a roaring noise in the driver front. When i turn left it gets louder. When I turn right it makes almost no noise. ny idea what this could be? I was thinking maybe a wheel bearing.

I would change The bearing first. Sounds like inner race has failed.
while you have the bearing out I would think about the cv axel also.You have done all the work and it could be both failing.

Need to take rear driveline out of 1998 chevy blazer

By removing the drive line you may move the car but it will lock up on you at some point,, the rear end, wheel bearing or broken axel will cause more damage, just tear into it and fix the problem before it causes you more trouble.....Hope that helps...

How do you unlock the rear axle, I need to have a new wheel bearing pressed on the axle

You have to remove the rear Diff. cover and there's a center pin that's held in place by a small 5/16 inch headed bolt. you remove the bolt, then slide the pin out, [be very careful not to rotate the gears as the small ones in the case will fall out!]. You then push on the flange of the axel, a C shaped lock will come off the inner part of the axel and drop into the case [ fish it out ], the axel will then be able to pull out of the tube. The seal and bearing is pressed into the end of the tube. You will need special tools to remove and replace them.

Rear wheel bearing

if its like the 99 winstar:

safely support the van, remove rear wheel, remove brake drum, remove grease cap. remove caged locknut assembly (38mm socket i think.) then pull the hub assembly from the axel. you may need to cut away the inner race if the bearing falls apart. clean axel, apply alittle anti size compound, then push on the new hub assembly. tighten down the hub nut to specifications (should be on the leaflet in the new bearing package), install dust cap, install drum, install wheel, lower and drive :)
