Use a cutting wheel and cut through the bearing as far as you can without damaging the drive shaft.Then get a big hammer and a chisel drive the chisel into the cut and break the bearing.

My 2005 GMC Sierra 1500 has a rear end roaring noise.

Change both axel bearings at the same time. The pinion bearing can be tested by slowly turning the drive shaft by hand and listening for any rough spots. It could be a carrier bearing or a bad U joint too. Isolate it by dropping the drive shaft and turning the pinion yoke by hand. If there is a problem, you'll be able it feel it. Then look at the drive shaft for worn carrier bearing and U joints.

Front dif bearing replacement

If it is the pilot shaft bearing then you will need to have a good impact wrench to remove the jamb nut. The ring gear assembly has to be removed,becareful not to lose the shims on both sides and keep them in order for each side. The inner bearing on the shaft is a pressed bearing so without proper tools these bearings are hard to remove.

2001 gmc sierra 1500 2 wheel drive shakes when taking off from stop shakins stops at about 15 mph was told drive shaft angles to side then back to diff. is this normal mechanic said he was not sure if this...

on a two wheel drive the shaft should only angle down if this a used truck I would say the rear
axel was hit on the side that the drive shaft angels away from and the alignment should be checked out.
