Question about 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee
How do I replace a rear wheel bearing on a 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee?
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.

Best to get a manual to guide you through, but basic procedure is to remove brake assembly and diff cover, remove "c" clip at axle end after removing spider gear cross pin. Axle slides out, then you can get to bearing. Reverse to install. Finer points are in either chilton or haynes... Or ask back here if you run into trouble (shouldn't)

the bearing does not always have to be really bad for the seal to fail. Centrifugal force will throw axle grease outward where it gets on the rotor. That can make it feel like the rotor is out of round. If grease got on the brake pads I'd replace them and perhaps even the rotor. As far as the caliper being frozen, possible....check it out when you have it apart. You can have more than one shoe untied at the same time. Not always, but it can happen.
When replacing the seal make sure you put some grease on the lip before putting the axle back in. by doing that it won't fail from dry running before the diff lube reaches it.
