These can be driven out with a long round punch and 4 lb sledge.Use punch that will bite nicely on the thin side of the race and strike in different spots to avoid cocking and hanging which requires harder strikes

85 k5 Chevy Blazer 4 wheel drive leaking oil by the Tires how do you replace the seals

If you are not an experienced mechanic, I would take it to a reputable shop. You have to completely dis-assemble the front steering knuckle to get to the seals, it is usually a good idea to replace your front axle u-joints while you are in there, and check on your upper and lower ball joints, as all of this has to come apart to get to your axle seals.

What is the rear wheel bearing gear ratio for a 2001 Chevy Blazer 4WD - 2 door?

I think you mean the rear end ratio. there is no gear ratio for the wheel bearing. If you look at the factory sticker on the drivers door, there will be an "axle code". write that down and then look here for the ratio.

Need front differential gear ratio? 99 Blazer, v6

3.42, 3.08 and 3.73 ratios were used.

You need to get under the vehicle and check the tag which has the diff ratio printed on it. The ratios front and back will be the same but look at both tags.

Have a 321 gear ratio bought another 321 gear ratio rear axle at yunk yard looks different it has spring in the cover where the gear are Will it work have a 5.2 engine

One axle may have an open differential and the other a locked. If they both have the same gear ratio and the housing is identical you shouldn't have any problems. If you had posi and the new one doesn't, then you'll obviously lose that but it won't effect anything else.

I was just wondering if my 2001 chevy blazer has a rear lockin differental??

They were an option but you can find out by looking in your glove box's GM RPO Codes. It's the sicker on the inside of the glove box with numbers and letter.
Here are some listing on the gear ratio you may have,
U4: Rear Axle, 3.08 Ratio             U5: Rear Axle, 3.23 Ratio U6: Rear Axle, 3.42 Ratio 
If it is a GU the G stands for the rear Locking Differential.
Good luck and hope this helps.
