Wheel Bearing/Hub Replacement Removal Procedure

Remove the rear brake drum.
On vehicles with all-wheel drive, remove the wheel drive shaft spindle nut.

Disconnect the wheel speed sensor electrical connector, if equipped.

Important
Do not damage the wheel drive shaft joint seal.
Support the wheel drive shaft with heavy mechanic's wire, or equivalent.

Remove the wheel bearing/hub mounting bolts.
Remove the wheel bearing/hub assembly from the suspension knuckle.

Drive Shaft Spindle Nut
Tighten the nut to 125 Nm (92 lb ft).

I found the wheel bearing hub for $90 (rear, non-abs) at www.autopartswarehouse.com. And after you buy a part they send you coupons for 5,10,15% off your next purchase and free shipping in the US over $50, they claim to have a price match guarantee for all parts sold on-line.
I replaced the rear right bearing last night with the new Timken bearing I bought. The hardest part was removing the rusted brake drum off the assembly. I had to unbolt the bearing hub first and force the drum over the shoes with a pry bar. The bearing hub was rusted solid to the face of the drum and had to beat the crap out of it to come off. In the instructions I found on this site to remove the bearing hub, no-one mentioned that you have to be careful not to damage the e-brake line and brake line attached to brake assembly. When you remove the bearing hub, the brake assembly is unsupported... I had it all done from setup to cleanup in about 2.5 hours. Much quieter now but I am hearing a noise in the front end that was hidden by the screaming rear bearing. Looks like I'm going to order another part....
