Replace bearings

So my rear bearings are going bad I can hear them, not to bad but do y'all suggest replacing just the bearing and seal or the whole hub assembly? And any insight on how to replace the bearings?

You can put a torch on the axle tube when the axle is out and its empty and have the bearings in the freezer overnight. Once the axle gets hot you have a helper with a big socket/hammer ready to go (both wearing thick gloves) stuff that freezing bearing into the axle and tap it into place.

He's talking about the back. Axle has to come out, bearing puller, new bearing in, re-assemble.

Now is a good time for new diff fluid and would also be a great time to install Cobra/Mach/Bullitt caliper bracket brackets on the axle so you can run the bigger vented rotors out back.

You can defiantly just replace the bears just to see if it fixes the noise. But it sounds pretty straight forward. Take off wheels, brakes and bracket, rotor, take off rear diff cover take out pins that hold the axle in place pull axle out take out the bearings replace them by tapping and reassemble, re-lube diff. And friction modifier. Which ones would y'all recommend to replace inners or outer. Or both?
