Lt230 frt output shaft bearing

any pointers on replacing the front output shaft bearing on an lt230 ? Is it as straight forward as removing the nut/flange/ seal, pull the bearing and tap in a new one ? Mine is screaming but just limped 260 miles home.

cool, but why not just use a seal puller to get the seal out?

x2, mine has a little play, Ive been told this is "common" issue with these trucks. I know one guy that did this he said it was horrible, and the new bearing still had play in it.

Well I had a random scream that usually started up after being off road. It turned out to be the steel plate under the drive shaft yoke that is meant to keep trash away from the seal itself. The plate was spinning when mired up and the scream was the steel plate grinding on the aluminum tcase housing. The bearing and seal were in great condition.

But no luck yet. Any advice would be appreciated.

finally got this done.
The method in the above link did not work for me at all. The main reason was that the inner race was very tight on the shaft and it would just pull the bolts out.
What did work was using the bolts as described above, and a slide hammer.

If I were to do it again I would use a slide hammer on the big nut on the shaft (after taking the seal and c clip out of course) and just pull the shaft and bearing out together.

Some may just come out with no trouble... mine did not.
