Default 2011 2WD XL Rear Wheel Bearing Question

Sorry if this has been answered but I couldnt find anything concrete. Most info is from older model with drum rears, or 4x4 with unit hub bearing.

I am getting my cart together from rockauto for front and rear rotors, pads, and as of now front wheel bearing and seal. The front replacement seems pretty straight forward, but I am having a tough time finding info on the rear.

I see the bearing National 5707 is used for the rear. It certainly is different looking than the fronts. Question is, what is needed for this bearing in terms of seals (1 or 2?) Is there only a single bearing in the rear? Is it any more difficult a job to replace vs the front? At 125k miles, is it advised to replace since I will be doing rotors and pads as well?

Let me know, I searched the How To section but might have missed it.

Thanks

The rear bearings aren't serviceable unless they need replaced or are leaking.

Great news. Thanks a ton. I had a hunch since they were not part of the disc assembly/hub.
