Cool Chevy Pinion bearing installation

I have a 77' chevy 4x4 with what I believe to have a bad pinion bearing. To replace this do I need to drop the diff cover and remove the cluster or can this be accomplished from the front of the pumpkin?
Thanx, RR3

replace pinion brngs

This is really not a do it yourself project.Changing the pinion brngs can change the pinion depth and requires repatterning the gears. Pulling the ring gear requires adjusting backlash and preload on carrier brngs. Proceed at your own risk. RW
