SOURCE: 1991 chevy silverado 1500 2-wd leaking oil seals, rear end.

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

SOURCE: 2001 Chevrolet Silverado How to remove rear axle

Remove...
wheels, drums or rotors, the cover for the differential (You will need a drip pan)
remove the "pin" (usually a 5/15" or 8mm head) that secures the spider gear pin. Remove the long spider gear pin, as it should slide out without a lot of force.
Push both axles inward, and remove the left and right "c" clips that hold the axles in.
Note... if you have a limited slip, it may be a little different of a set up due to clutches in the differential.

SOURCE: what type of oil do i need for a 1995 chevy

The transfer case uses two types of oil one is automatic fluid the front part of differential takes gear oil 85/120 wt. both differentials I would use synthetic oil and would run 85/120 however if the rig has been well used you might want to go with a higher weight oil oil so you don't get wheel seal leaks.

Wheel bearing out on steering axle, 1500 ext cab silverado '03 What do I have to remove or detach to get to the inside bearing?


I'm almost positive that you will find the inner bearing in the back of the brake rotor behind an oil seal. replace the oil seal when you do the bearing. Remove the brake caliper and the center axle nut and the rotor will literally fall off. Hope this helps.

I would like to know the torque seting for an oil pan plug for a 2011 chev pickup 1500,4wd/ 5.3l engine.


This is a figure that is seldom specified and the closest I can come to a torque for you is 15 to 22 ft/lb. If you renew the gasket and wrap a few turns of PTFE pipe sealing tape around the threads before reinstalling the plug, a good nip on the plug will be sufficient to seal it and prevent it from coming loose. Overtightening it will just make it more difficult to remove again without damaging the drive surface for the wrench.

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.

Front axel oil leak


High pressure wash the entire area and engine, including the strut or shock area. Depending on how long it takes to leak, look at the axle at night with a flashlight as you can see shinny liquid easy at night, but you will see it in the day also if the leaking is prominant.

You might have a leaky strut or shock that is running down on the axle and I am hoping the mechanic took you for a ride,
