Well, I actually managed to get some work done with the rear end this weekend. The rear axles were returned from napa with the trunnions pressed off the axle. I now was able to take the front and rear bearings out. The main front bearings are shot and will need to be replaced.
I also repainted the axles, brake plates, sway bar, and also put the sway bar back together with new bushings:

Here are the bearings all cleaned up:
