I just replaced the bearings on my Frigidaire front-loader rear tub assembly which is very similar to yours.  What a pain in the butt....  The inner stainless tub didn't want to come out of the rear tub half.  I had to use a wooden rod and a hammer to punch it out.  I then found that  the inner bearing was totally shot as it was covered in brown goop.  The dead bearing came out of the tub in pieces after repeated attempts w/ a metal pipe and hammer. 

The cost of new bearings+bearing seal+tub seal w/ shipping came to about $45 after a lot of searching.  If I had to do it over again, I'd certainly consider buying a new rear tub assembly which comes the new bearings and the bearing seal already pressed.  I think it comes with a new tub seal too(but don't quote me on that).  Under $140 shipped!
