Use a slide hammer, bearing puller and adapter to remove the old axle bearing.

special tools are required if the bearings are also to be serviced.

I would say if you don't have the tools and the time, I would take it to a garage.

How do I remove the rear pinion shaft from a 1998 GMC Jimmy 4x4 to replace the bearing ?

you will have to remove the axles first ,then the crown wheel then the pinion flange and pull the pinion shaft out past where the crown wheel was . From the fact that you had to as how to do and that setting up a diff is not just a matter of changing a bearing I strongly recommend to you that you have this job done by an accredited transmission shop as failure to properly reassemble and adjust the settings will cost you a large amount of money

Left Wheel Makes Funny Noise...

sounds like wheel bearings or 4wd might be stuck engaged... try cycling 4wd or checking grease packing first.

1997 GMC Jimmy Rumbling Problem

Yes if your shock is bad it will MAY have tweaked the bearing just a bit. It doesnt take much at all. When the pressure is off the bearing (ie 2wd) your shock should keep that bearing from moving "Floating" around a whole lot in the hub, when you add the 4wd now you have the drive axle and the shock keeping the bearing from "floating" moving around. 4wd is a more stable for your suspension which helps to keep things in align (hence the more power and stability). You may have a good bearing here, but may have a bad hub. Since you have replaced the hub and the CV Shaft. I would suspect you are having a bearing issue. The bigger question is how and why? Feel free to ask me anything more about this. I am willing to help you in any way I can to help you get this resolved. Is there anything else that you think maybe contributing to this? Anything parts you replaced other than the hub/CV Joint?

Thank you for using FixYa!
