fronts are easy, take off hub, , remove snap ring from outer axle, take off the nuts, pull off hub, pound out the races, pound in new, put seal in. tighten down bearings till it is bottomed and tight, then back off 1/8th a turn. set up lock nut, etc.

rear, pull shaft, block up backing plate, and hammer on shaft so that the bearing will be pushed off. careful of the splines, they can get fucked up easy.
