    I own a 91 Blazer and just had the drivers side rear inner axel bearing eat itself. Can someone tell me what might be involved in fixing this? I am trying to determine whether I should try to tackle this job myself.

    its not to bad of a job, you will need to pull the diff cover and pull out the axle shaft, then use a slide hammer to remove the bearing then install a new bearing and seal put the shaft back, put the cover on and fill up new gear oil and your good to go

    That's right, simple enough. Just look at the axle surface where the bearing rides. If it's damaged you can buy a repair bearing or you'll have to replace the axle.
