JACK UP the car and place AXLE stands or wood or wheel under the car (SAFTEY FIRST ) . take the LOWER BALL JOINT (most have a pinch bolt), this must be removed completly, (this has grove in BALL JOINT), undoing the ball joint somtimes can be really tight ( undo the nut DO'NT take the nut OFF you may need to hit with soft COPPER hammer). if the ball joint centre turns, NEEDS REPLACING. turn steering wheel all the right. and jugle the DRIVE SHAFT out of the HUB. the other END of the DRIVE SHAFT pulls OUT may need a bar to free this. revsal of this replaces the drive shaft. gerry

SOURCE: noise in front end, sounds
You say the rear wheel axles and bearings have been replaced, you mention nothing of the front wheels, you have the symptoms of a front wheel bearing being worn out, remove them and check for pitting in the bearing rollers or the bearing races, I am sure you will find a problem. Hope this helps solve your issue with the bearing noise.

SOURCE: front axle passenger side
about a 1 hour job
1 you need to remove the wheel 4 or 5 nuts.
2 you need to remove the caliper 2 bolts at the back of the disk.
3 there will be a cup in the middle of the disk you can remove the cup with a hammer and a medium flat blade screw driver behind the cup us a large nut it may have a **** pin going through it you will need a pair of side cutter plyers to remove the split pin the nut will be 24mm.
4 there will be 2 bolts with a nut each on the back of them undo the bolts and the disk will come toward you and hang on an angle.
5 your driveshaft will be sort of locked in to the transmission give the driveshaft a bit of a shake side to side and pull toward you at a steady rate you dont want to damage your seals.
6 it is all straight forward when putting i back together just make sure to do the caliper and the 24mm nut up as tight as you can and dont forget the split pin.
if i was you i was you i would do the driver side axel as well they always seem to follow not long after you replace the other
hope i explained it well let me no if you get stuck
no you dont need any special tools

Diff does not need to be removed to change axle. If you are good at this stuff, you can figure your way through it, or get a manual as a guide (haynes etc. are OK for this stuff) Axle is held into carrier by a "c" clip so you do need to remove the cover and spider gears to get it out (not difficult) If you run into a problem, someone here will surely help!

the axle seal yes. the drive bearing? are you talking the one inside the trans or the cv joints or the outer wheel bearing the bearings inside the tranny cannot be replaced without pulling the trans out.the others can be.
