why are you changing the bearing? Just change out the oil seal and be done with it.

Don't you have to remove the bearing to remove the seal? The video I saw they cut the retaining ring and bearing to get to the seal? I have no clue when I saw them saying either press them out or cut them I realize with just hand tools it is out of my ability

No you do not need to touch a bearing. You open the cover, drain the fluid, take off the bearing caps via the 4 bolts (make sure not to forget the location and orientation of the caps), then pop the carrier out. It will come out as an assembly. Then you can look into the tube hole and see the seals. You pry them off and seat the new one in.

EDIT: Here is a right up http://www.stu-offroad.com/axle/d30seals/seal-1.htm

The rear D44's axle shaft uses a common and easily found SET10 bearing which together with its bearing retainer must be pressed onto the shaft. Both must be removed, which will destroy them, to replace the seal. Timken is a very good bearing brand. Ask any shop for SET10 bearings and retainers, that is the most common way that bearing is requested.

Here's a good writeup on how to do the job... D44 Axle Shaft Removal and Overhaul - 1

It is ok I got a appointment at a axle shop to do it I got the bearing seal and ring and fluid if needed does anyone know about how much it will cost to put it in? I forgot to ask but I will before I drop it off just curious what others paid I wish I could do it myself but I don't have the tools or confidents either
