It's actually easier to pull the bearing because the seal will come with it. I mean, if you already have the axle out, you might as well replace the bearing as well. For that matter, since you have the pumpkin open and drained, might as well pull the other axle and replace that bearing as well. Not really necessary, but since you're there...
^^ I agree ^^ It's a little more direct than the way I put it and I couldn't have said it better myself. That was an oversight on my part.
