Sounds like you have blown the internal heater matrix and the thermostat is not working or is blocked. you are going to need a new matrix and thermostat and a bloody good flush out of the system just in case there is something in the system means taking off the rad hoses flush them out from both ends. and doing the same to the engine. replacing the matrix as its not going to be able to fix it if its shooting water out of the vents change the thermostat check pipes for damage.

Yes you do.It would be a good idea to replace the bearing and the seal at the same time.Reason being is that 9 times out of 10 the bearing gets damaged in the proccess of being pressed off.

I wouldn't call that "normal" but, not completely unusual either. Many units will run for 300k miles without ever needing service past routine lube changes. Others will have chronic problems. It follows no real pattern.
Many times it can be traced back to the first failure which caused some slight damage from loss of lubrication and generated a bit of metal debris which throughout the entire time was never thoroughly cleaned out, instead, causing subsequent problems with other seals and components. Sometimes it is just "bad luck" that more than one less than perfect part found it's way into one item such as your differential. At the point you are at now, all this is just supposition as any evidence of the original cause has long ago disappeared.

Both of my rear axel seals are leaking on my 2001 Jeep Lorado. I am preparing to repair the seals thisweekend but before I do, I need to know the appropriate steps in doind so. My main concern is the ABS. Will I have to disconnect the ABS gears at all?

Likely then the tech was wrong and some damage has occurred.
(sometimes it's hard to see) Gear sets are expensive and so are bearings. Only people with the proper tools and experience should attempt a rebuild.
Most often you can find a good used unit end to end in a scrapyard for under $200. (I haven't paid more than $125 for any I have gotten lately). You can put your new axles and hub bearings on the new unit or save them for spares.
One very important thing is to exactly match the gear ratio of the one you are replacing. There should be a tag on the diff cover or you can count the ring gear teeth and divide by pinion tooth count to get that #. Some are also stamped on the edge of the ring gear as well. It takes about a day for an average person (with a helper) to remove and install one on the ground providing you have decent tools, jacks and a bit of experience. Far less time on a lift with power tools.
