Unless you have a hydraulic press, don't attempt this in your basic garage or driveway.

Job is not terribly difficult, but instructions are too long to re-write them. Get yourself a haynes manual (about 20 bucks) and it will guide you through the job. If you need any help along the way, I'll be glad to help! (manual will help with lots of other stuff as well!!
If you have the setup I'm thinking of, make sure you buy a new diff cover gasket and gear lube along with axle bearing.

SOURCE: Rear End Shake
Sorry didn't see heading for shake for some reason. One of the things I found on my nephews cherokee that caused same problem, was a build up on back of aluminum rims as well as on hub area where it mates when installed, that was never cleaned off when wheels were rotated or whatever. I scraped and wire brushed back of rims down to original metal again, as well as hubs, and problem was gone. If they don't mate even & flat against the two surfaces, then they aren't running true. I jacked it up & watched rim at outer edge when rotating, and could see it would wobble slightly.

SOURCE: noise at rear wheel
lift the rear axle off the ground and spin the wheels around as fast as you can. if the bearings are bad you will hear it if the sound changes as it spins. If it a scratching noise that will be from the disc brake pads

SOURCE: replace the rear wheel bearing
better check a manual, The ones I have done do not have c-clips in the diff. You remove 4 nuts behind the brake backing plate, then use a slide hammer to pull out the axle shafts. Then the bearing retainer must be removed (cut or drill into it, the crack it with a hammer blow from a chisel), it should slide off the axle. Then use a bearing splitter and a press to remove the bearing. To install use a long pipe and press to install the new bearing and retainer. Change the seal while your in there. Hope this helps.
