Help, rear axle bearing is bad

I have a 1996 gt and just installed some 18's, rear axle bearing is bad I think, how big of a job is it to change both bearings and seals,and how do I go about it?

Re: Help, rear axle bearing is bad

It's not too bad. Pull the wheels, then brakes. Pull the diff cover, then pull the center pin out of the t-lock(held in by one 8mm bolt), then push the axles in and remove the c-clips, then remove the axles, pull the old seals and bearings, put the new ones in and reverse the procedure. You will need a slide hammer to remove the old bearings.
