I would need to send diagrams and instructions. Please send an email to email@example.com and I will get these right to you. Please include engine size(should be 4.3 ltr) and 4WD or 2WD. These you will find to be real easy. Please make sure you have the axle nut in the centre, soaked in WD-40 to aid in removal. Do you have axcess to an air compressor? It will make this so much easier.

When I replace the axle halves, I run the Nut off till it is level with the shaft end. THen take a piece of wood and set it across the shaft and hit the wood with a hammer. Usually only takes one or two hits and pops right out.Then I remove the nut and finish removal . Hope this helps, Good luck and have a great day.

Get a Haynes book for your model truck for less than $20.00. It has pictures and written directions. It is easy to do.
It is foolish to work on your truck without a service manual. You can order one on the internet or go to a Strauss or Pep Boys store,

It's a press-in bearing. If you don't have the tools to press the bearing, you can still save some money. Here's what I did:
- Drain transmission oil,
- Remove front right wheel,
- Remove brake caliper, pads, caliper hanger,
- Remove the wheel speed sensor (even if no ABS),
- Remove the two large strut bolts (100+ lbs ft/lbs of torque),
- Remove the ball joint nut,
- Remove the ball joint from the steering knuckle,
- Remove the axle from the transmission using a pry bar.
Now you'll have the axle, steering knuckle, wheel hub and brake rotor removed from the car, and it'll all be ceased together. Bring the whole thing to your favorite mechanic and get him to separate all these parts and to install the new bearing in the steering knuckle. It'll cost about $100.
Now you'll have the axle, steering knuckle with new bearing and hub installed, and the brake rotor. Take these parts home and put the car back together in reverse order.
Seriously consider replacing the axle while you're at it.
