    Axle bearings on a chevrolet 10-12 bolt??? You have to pull the axles which requires removing cover, remove cross pin bolt, remove cross pin, push axles in, remove C-clips, pull out axles. With disc brakes on the rear you will have to also remove the caliper and rotor.

    The seal and bearing will be staring at you which is fixed in the housing. Remove the seal, then bearing. Sometimes the bearings are stubborn and may require a slide hammer with fingers.

    I just pulled mine out to learn how to do it. I used the slide hammer, it was pretty simple and they came out easily. No worries
