So, two new bearings and new pins on one brake. The bad pin didn't have the decency to be on the first wheel worked on, but the other side can wait til spring.

For future note, when checking the spin of a drive wheel, should both wheel be off the ground?
Doesn't really matter in the grand scheme if the trans is in neutral. if it's in park, obviously it won't spin at all with only 1 wheel up. on a lift I've tried it in park and in neutral and there's about as much differential noise/vibration either way.
