Re: 98 Ford F-150 2WD rear axle removel
The Ford is similar to the Chevy. Same procedures apply. Same retaining bolt in center section needs to be removed to allow cross shaft to come out. Same technique in removing spider gears. Same "C-clip" retainers on axle ends. you shouldn't have any issues.

If you have drums on the rer yes you do have to remove the axle its simple though you unbolt the 6-8 bolts on the end of the axle then it just simply slides out thats it there mite be some resistance but there isnt anything else holding it in. and you dont have to worry about putting it back into the same spot eather just slide it back in and line up the drum.
you have to pull the rear axle, open the rear end and pull the clips or bolt for that axle ane pull the axle out then take a screw driver and pop the wheel seal out, just tap the new weal seal in with a hammer carefull not to bend it and then put the axle back in and the bolt or clips
You will have to get a book. Some trucks, they just pull out, others, you have to pull the pins out of the rear differential. Jack the truck up on the one side so the oil doesn't come flooding out your way. Pull the bolts off, then you have to snatch the axle out with a chain bolted to the lug studs,or a dent puller, It isn't an easy job. Replace the seal and the bearings, and tap it back in, hope this helps.
Yes you will need to pull the axle to get that seal out. You will need to pull tire open punkin or gear case there will be a C clip holding the axle inplace pull this out and very carefully slide the axle out the seal is in the axle housing
If you haven't done one before. I would get someone who has and watch how it is done, don't want to be strained in the driveway shaking your head. It would be a good idea to pick up some bearings and do both sides as well as both oil seals.
well if the axle is leaking you dont need to adjust the shims, it needs a new seal. pull the brakes off open the rear diff there will be a c lip holding the axle in, remove the c lip pull the axle repalce the seal on the end of the axle tube, put it all back together and you done
