    Had mine replaced in May 2018 at 203,000kms shortly before we commenced our current travels. Had no idea if they needed it or not, but thought it wise to get this checked out before travelling remote. Bearings need to be pressed in/out,so wasn't something I could attempt at home (or on the side of a bush track somewhere). Turned out I caught them just in time. One side was showing signs of running hot due to lack of grease & the other side had just the smallest weep of diff oil getting past the seal. The bearings are a lot bigger than in the front, (not sure if yours will be the same as on my leaf sprung ute with higher load capacity than the rear coil models). The mechanic felt that given the weight we carry, & probably the weight previously carried when it was a Telstra vehicle that 200k was about what he'd have expected. Lighter vehicles could expect a bit more.
