Default Front diff

Okay so I started to hear a noise from my truck when driving after crawling around under it I noticed a lot of play in the front drive shaft and both front axles. planned on changing out the bearings tomorrow until a friend said that to change the drive shaft bearings we have to take apart the whole differential and it requires special tools to go back together. Is this true? Has anyone taken one apart? is it really hard? Thanks

I have the same issue on my 2008 sxt. I`m looking for the same info. I know that on my Yukon the was supposed to be some play..... just not that much. There is alot of vibration at higher speeds as well as going to and from 4x4. Just cant find any info to this issue.
