Its not just the bearing its the hub...cheap or relatively cheap fix. The hub is about $100-150 depending where you shop and about 1 hour labor unless its heavy duty then a bit more money.

SOURCE: Rear Axle Bearing Replacement

That absolutely sounds like an axle (wheel) bearing. Jack up that corner of the truck and grab the top and bottom of the wheel, and shake like crazy. If you have any play whatsoever, it's a sign of a bad bearing (although you could have a bad one and not have any play - it would only mean the bearing isn't worn badly enough to cause looseness in the wheel).

You should be able to remove the axles without opening the diff up. If the axles have c-clips or snap rings on the ends inside the diff, you can usually get the axles out by dismounting them from the hubs and getting them free of all attachment except the diff, and then use a large flat-tip screwdriver as a pry bar. Use it right where the axle body mates to the diff, and lever it while you pull/yank/shake/swear at the axle, and you'll manage to pop the axle out of the diff. Sometimes it takes some time and profanity, but so far it's worked for me everytime.

SOURCE: severe bearing noise from front wheel bearing/cv

you have to replace bearing and hub as a unit.you have to remove remove brakes and caliper rotor set them aside dont disconnect brake line. get a piece of clothes rack wire to hold brake caliper .do not let it hang by brake hose. you got to remove hub nut. best way to do that is loosen it a litttle while tire still on weight of car keep wheel from turning .

SOURCE: Remove the Center Support Drive Shaft Bearings

use a cutting wheel and cut through the bearing as far as you can without damaging the drive shaft.Then get a big hammer and a chisel drive the chisel into the cut and break the bearing.

SOURCE: Whining noise while driving and stopping

This must be the power steering pump that is going bad. You might have to replace it.

SOURCE: 98 gmc sonoma w 2 pc drive shaft 2wd noise from

remove the rear shaft from a 1990 full size gmc van (g-van) make sure the one you select has the scew on sleeve at the front of the rear section of the shaft
this will be the right lenght
take the rear yolk off your old shaft cut of the ball socket now get the same u-joint your truck calls for and mount the rear yolk (the section of the shaft that bolts to your rear end) to the new shaft
this works ive done it
you eliminate 2 of the 4 u-joints and lighten up your shaft this releives strain on you tranny and rear end when these u-joints and ball bearings fail they cause the vibrations which ruin the rest of your drive train also you gain 10hp
i spent 300 bucks rebuilding the OEM shaft and got no where so for 25 bucks i did this

I have a GMC Sierra 2500 with 4_wheel drive. I


Not sure if this year was a sealed hub like newer ones bt the process is the same. You need to take off the brake caliper, take off the caliber mount to the axle, then the rotor should come off. May be able to remove the stud now but if not, will probably have to remove the hub. It is bolted on to the axle with 4 bolts usually. Need to pop the cap off of the outside of the hub to access the nut holding the front axle shaft to the hub. It is splined shaft that is not pressed on. By tapping the end (lightly on the threaded end) and pulling out the hub will usually release it. Good luck!

I have a 2005 GMC Sierra 1500 with a v6 and a 5 speed manual Transmisiion.When Shifting from any gear I get a clunk.When in 1st and moving at low speed makes a noise like ball bearings dropping or better...


is your clutch pedal spongy if it is a hydraulic clutch there will be a small resivoir on the fire wall next to the brake master cylinder,if so check the fluid level,the noise your describing sounds like drive shaft u-joints,or cv axle drive shafts in front if its 4 wheel drive,block the wheels and put the truck in neutral,to release any tension on the drive shaft,go underneath,grab the driveshaft a foot behind the transmission,and push up an pull down on it while observing the u-joint in front of it if there is any looseness or play it is damaged,any movement up and down or left and right requires replacement,do the same to the other end at the rear axle,the rear axle u-joint is the most common failure,but check them both,

If you have that much play back there, first check rear universal . If play is present in pinion with shaft removed, you will not be happy with what you find inside the cover.1/2 turn of lash in any gearset is far beyond the scope of any adjustment. Rebuilding is an exact science and must be done with special tools and lots of experience.
With any luck the u joint is bad...
