is it a grinding or a howling? is the noise there when you get off the gas? you have to pull the axle shafts out to change the bearings, but it isn't that hard to do. shouldn't take more than a couple of hours at most.

The rear wheel bearings cannot be repacked and just must be replaced if that is what the problem is. Yes the shafts will need to be pulled. While you are at it also replace the oil seals as they are prone to leak when the bearings start to go.
