take your rotor put it on backwards with 3 lug nuts only a couple of turns and thats your slam hammer dont waste your money you will need it for the new bearing seal unit 252.99 at kragen and then take it to a machine shop to have it changed on the axle

You will remove the 4 bolts on the backing plate, then you will need to attach and use a slide hammer to remove the axle. You can rent a slide hammer at almost any auto parts store, or, they have a slide hammer set at Harbor Freight Tools for $20 that should do the job.

Check out the service information available from AutoZone - They may have the information you need to remove your rear axle shaft.

I tapped the back side of the mounting flange with four pound hammer. Axle came right out.
Machine shop removed and replaced bearing/seal for about sixty dollars.
