My transfer case front output shaft bearing has some play, but is not leaking. I am pulling the case soon to put in the Merchant upgrade in it, whats involved in changing the front bearing and seal? I am also replacing rear seal when I have it out. Is there any other maintenance that should be done?

Change the chain also! And that bearin will most likely need to be pressed out

The chain as a precaution or are they a regular problem? My truck has 115,000 miles on stock horsepower so I hope nothing is really torn up

How did it go? I noticed after a hard pull in 4wd that my front output shaft has a good amount of play but not leaking. Truck had 50k on it when I got it. Showed signs of an easy life when I got it and I have never abused it. Only 85K on the clock now. Find it hard to believe that bearings would be out already.
