Default Installed new rear axle bearings (9.25 rear end))

hey all, work made me take today off because i worked saturday , so i decided to get autozone loaner tools and do my rear bearings today... at first I was going to use autozone bearings but they didn't fit right so i got dealer bearings (1-03507898AB)..if you got time before you do yours, get it online from one of the mopar sites..waay cheaper ($35 vs $58).. anyways..here is how i did them..

1) put truck on jackstands and remove wheels
2) unbolt rear calipers (21mm) and rest them on the leafs, remove rotors
3) remove 12 bolts (13mm) from diff cover an drain rear end
4) unbolt pin bolt (8mm) and remove pin from carrier
5) push in axles, remove C clips in carrier, then pull out axles
6) using bearing puller, insert into bearing, then pull on it to secure the puller onto bearing edge, then tight the nut which secures the flat washer onto outter seal.
7) screw on slide hammer onto bearing puller, it took 4-5 whacks on it and the bearing and seal popped out (I was careful not to break the seal because i reused them)
8) clean out axle end where bearing came out of and apply grease liberally in it.
9) also apply grease liberally onto new bearings and rotate several times to work the grease into it.
10) put new bearings in and tap around the edges to get it to "bite" into axle housing, i then used the old bearing, placed it on top of new one and proceed to whack on the edges of it to press the bearing into axle housing, it will recess into axle, then i tapped the seal on an proceeded to tap on the edges until the seal was flush with edge of the axle housing.
11) wiped axles and re inserted them into housing and C clipped them in the carrier.
12) inserted pin back into carrier and bolted
13) put rotors, calipers back on and put the wheels back on.
14) put fluid in and then put the truck back onto ground...that's it..I'll post the few pics I took shortly...
