wheel and set park brake
extremely tight. Remove brake pads
from caliper, and then unbolt caliper. Release the park
brake. Unbolt the
heater supply tube. Remove six 8mm
hex bolts on the CV joint near the transmission. Remove axle. Remove four
bolts on outside of housing that hold the 2 bearing race retainers. Reinstall new bearing into the housing... again this will require
the EBS tool, and of course you'll have to rearrange the parts of the
tool.Once the new
bearing is installed, reinstall the bearing race retainers and the four screws
that hold the retainers. Carefully
reinstall the axle, making sure not to push the hub out of the bearing
again.Reinstall six 8mm hex bolts
holding the CV joint to the transmission. Reinstall
rotor then set parking brake extremely tight.Reinstall brake
caliper andl brake pads.Reinstall heater
supply tube and wheel,
torque wheel bolts to 96 ft-lbs,re-install transmission cover and suspension cover. Here you can find the quality parts http://www.carpartswarehouse.com/part/wheel-hub-bearing.html
THE BRAKE LINING ON ONE OF THE SHOES MAY HAVE LET GO AND OVERLAPPED THE OTHER ONE,CAUSING IT TO BIND UP..IF NOT,TRY OPENING BLEEDER SCREW AND SEE IF IT RELEASES..IF IT DOES,REAR BRAKE HOSE MAY BE HOLDING WHEEL CYLINDER PISTONS OUT KEEPING BRAKE ON..YOU'LL NEED TO REMOVE AFFECTED DRUM AND INSPECT BRAKES AND REAR HUB/BEARINGS
its actually pretty easy if you have the basic tools needed and a little mechanical knowledge, because i dont think you can buy just the bearing at a auto parts store. they sell you the whole hub assembly which is great for the DIYer.
lift the car off the ground and block it from rolling and place a jack stand under it so it cant fall on anyone.
vehicles are equipped with sealed hub and bearing assemblies. The hub
and bearing assemblies are non-serviceable. If the assembly is damaged,
the complete unit must be replaced.

Here is the easiest way . take a 14mm socket and extentsion and place it on the bolts and place againt your axle tube and start your truck and turn your wheel against it instead of pounding you will use your powersteering like a press to get your hub out its quicker and less strenous than pounding on the bolts ive done this many times i even made a extentsion for it i use a 14mm 1/2 drive shallow socket and a extension thats about 4 inches long i know im posting late on this one but if it helps anyone out then great
i just did a 2002 2500 4x4 with a dana straight axle and had no problem getting on the bolts with a 9/16 12 point socket on a 6 inch extension. If you do not use an extension the head of the ratchet will hit the yoke of the axle shaft.
