Pinion Bearing Replacement

I was greasing my u-joints on Saturday and noticed that I have about 1/8" of slop in all directions at my pinion. I am pretty sure the bearing is going but I have never worked on a rear end before. How hard is this to fix and are any special tools required? I have searched all over the net and can't find much info on this topic.


Thanks!

Crap, I was hoping you weren't going to say that. I've already had to dump $4,000 into my truck this year, all of which was work I could do, but I had a feeling this one might be out of my range of abilities. Do you know what a fair cost is to have this work done?

really hard to say - shop rates and location. but if u take it to a specialized shop that handles only rear ends that would be a good idea. guys who do it all day every day will do it quicker and more cost effective than someone who knows how but hardly ever does.
