    Here is the service manual instructions. You'll need some special tools to pull and press the bearings into the hub and a torque wrench:


    1. Release the parking brake.
    2. Remove or disconnect the following:

      • Rear wheel
      • Wheel speed sensor, if equipped
      • Brake caliper and rotor
      • Rear axle hub bolts
      • Tone wheel with Tool 09445-21000
      • Carrier assembly
      • Nut after unstaking it

    3. Press out the rear axle hub.
    4. Remove the bearing inner race with Tool 09445-21000.
    5. Remove the bushings from the carrier with Tools 09453-33000B and 09545-21100.

    To install:


    1. Press in the bushings to the carrier with Tools 09453-33000B and 09545-21100.
    2. Press in the bearing to the hub with Tool 09221-21000.
    3. Tighten the flange nut to meet the concave portion of the spindle.
    4. Press in the tone wheel with Tool 09221-21000. Torque the nut to 191 ft. lbs. (260 Nm).
    5. Install or connect the following:

      • Hub and bearing assembly to the backing plate and torque the bolts to 88 ft. lbs. (120 Nm)
      • Brake caliper and rotor
      • Wheel speed sensor, if equipped

    Went to Advance Auto Parts and got the parts and jumped in. This is how it actually goes,
    1) Remove the tire.
    2) Remove the two bolts on the rear of the brake assembly and remove the assembly.
    3) Remove the phillips head screw/bolt holding the disc to the hub.
    4) Remove the disc by pulling straight out on the disc. ( you don't need a puller for this however it may take a little persuasion to break it loose)
    5) You will see the emergency brake assembly (Don't mess with it, it is not necessary)
    6) On the back of the hub you will see/feel 4 bolts that hold the hub to the frame (I believe these should be 14mm bolts) break them loose and remove the bolts.
    7) Pull the hub assembly straigh out ( be careful the splash shield and the emergency brake assembly are held to the frame behind the hub.)
    8) Reverse directions to install new hub assembly

    I personally am changing my break pads while I have it all taken apart. (It's about time anyway)

    No special tools needed.

    Congratulations! Sorry about the special tools but that info was straight out of the shop manual. Make sure you pack the bearings with a high quality grease and do that every 2 years.Your bearings will last forever that way
