I am preparing to do a complete brake job on the old ST. I need new rotors in the front as they both have a fairly large gouged ring in them. Going to replace the bearings and seals also because, well, they are cheap so why why reuse the old stuff. Question is... should I bother with the rear wheel bearing also? I can't find a video on the net showing how to do it. Is it easy enough or does it require dealing with the axles too?
Also, I have done rear drums before but its been a while and wanted a reference video. Can't find one for STs. Will a video for 95-09 Rangers suffice?

Did my rear drums a couple of years ago; very little wear compared to front.
As close as I've found for Gen1 ExST rear drum brakes
is an A1Auto video for a 2001 Ranger brakes; pretty good though.
Click here for several links on ExST brakes including that vid.
Take a few pics & post as you do this work as good reference info for others.
Hope this helps.

Found a couple videos of rear bearing replacement in some older Rangers. Looks to me like the axles would need to come out. Makes sense. Not gonna deal with that unless I have to.
