    I changed my rear wheel bearing. Yes its a pain. You also need access to a press. Just take the whole rear axle shaft out and take it to the shop with ur replacemente bearing. Don't forget you have to cut the collar off the back of the bearing for it to release from backing plate. It took us a while to figure this out. I did my drum breaks and shoes at the same time since everything was pulled apart.
