    are you talking about the seal where the driveshaft goes in? I have the same problem. I was told its a $7.00 part but a $200.00 repair. does this sound reasonable?

The outer bearings can be driven in using a suitable Very Large socket. Removing the old ones either requires a puller or a cutting torch. I use either depending on the state of the bearings.
when driving new ones in, make sure

  1. your socket wont jam in with the bearing
  2. you only hit against the outer bearing shell
  3. you keep it very straight
  4. hit it til you hear a resounding solid clunk as the bearing reaches full insertion.
  5. you fit a new oil seal
  6. use a block of wood across the oil seal face to protect it as you knock it in - keep it straight!
To answer the other question, yes you do have to remove the driveshaft to replace the oil seal. the Diff ack-plate has to be removed, the locking horseshoes from the ends of the driveshaft, & the wheels. It takes about 1 hour to remove them & clean the backplate. about another to reassemble.
I charge about $140 plus parts

How much crankshaft end play should there be?


Virtually none. If you have significant crankshaft end play, and you are not leaking oil, don't worry about it. If you are leaking oil from the rear main seal or from the pulley seal, consider rebuilding or replacing your engine before it seizes.
Recommendation: DRIVE IT 'TIL IT DIES. Replacement engines for your vehicle are abundant and not particularly expensive.

How do i change da rear other seal on the rearend of a 1985 chevy silverado


Replacing axle seals requires removing the differential cover,removing the spur gear bolt/shaft,removing the C clip,then sliding the axle out.You will have to press the bearing off of the axle to remove the seal,which usually will break the bearing(might as well replace it anyway on an '85).Removing and replacing the bearing should be done with a shop press.

How to rear axle on chevy express van 1500


You want to know how to remove the axle correct ? There are clips inside the rear carrier that hole the axles from running out . You need to remove the the bolts on the back of the rear carrier but make sure that you can get the fill plug out first so you can put oil back in it . The clips come out like nothing you can do it with your fingers you need to replace the seals and look at the axle shaft and condution of the bearings replace as required also check to see if the vent is clear on the carrier the oil is heavy and expands alot this will blow the axle seals . The older it is the more likely it is that you need axle s or bearings but you will need new seals if you remove the axles

Rear end wine - 2000 Chevy K1500. Sounds like the axle bearing but not 100% sure. Never replaced bearings in the rear before - not sure what I might be getting in for.


First check level of oil in rear end housing, if low, pull drums & see if any axle seals are leaking.
