Greenhorn on rearaxles needs a good walkthrough on how to replace the wheelbearings on a 8 1/4 rearend.
1-Pull wheel and drum or rotor.
2-Pull cover and remove cross pin.
3-Push axle in [do not turn] C-clip will come out.
4- Pull axle straight out.
5- Put cross pin back in. [Keeps the spiders and side gears and shims from dropping out].
6-Remove seal and bearing. You will have to have a puller and driver. There are ways to improvise,
