SOURCE: How do you change rear axle seal in a chevy pickup

To change the rear seal, yo will need to raise and support the rear of the vehicle. Remove the wheels and drums or rotors (depending on drum or disc brakes.) Remove the rear differential cover bolts and the cover (have a drain pan under the differential) You will likely need to turn the driveshaft so the center pin bolt is acessible at the back or the differential. This is a 5/16" (or 8mm) bolt that is on the right (passenger) side of the differential carrier assembly. I recommend a new bolt be installed here on reassembly. Once the retaining bolt is out, slide the center pin out enough to allow the axle shafts to be pushed in toward the center of the diff. to remove the "C" clips that retain the axle shafts in the carrier assembly. Be careful if you happen to pull the center pin all the way out not to allow the carrier assembly (has the ring gear mounted on it) to turn, as this can rotate the spider gears out of alignment causing a headache on reassembly. With the "C" clip removed the axle shaft can be pulled out of the diff. Inspect the bearing area of the shaft for rust, pitting, or scoring. Remove the old seal and carefully install the new one. Reverse proceedures to install. Take care to note the "C" clips and center pin bolt are properly reinstalled. Fill with 2.5 to 3 quarts of rear axle grease for you vehicle.
good luck.

Grease and differential oil inside left rear drum


Not that difficult, raise and support the rear of the truck and remove the wheels. Might as well replace both sides so you know you have new seals, remove the differential cover and drain the fluid. Once differential is opened and cleaned , remove the axle "C" clip that hold the axle in place and slide the axle out. Once the axle is out remove the wheel seal and clean around the area. This would be a good time to replace the wheel bearing too since you have access to them and there not that expensive. Install the new bearing and seal, note make sure you oiled the bearing and seal before installing it back and take care when installing the axle back in and "C: clip. Use RTV silicon gasket maker to seal the differential cover and wheels back on and lower. If your lazy like i am, you can drain the differential fluid and replace it with a 50/50 mix with gear oil and Lucas engine oil additives. That may stop the leak and get you a few more miles. You gear oil is (ford 75W-140) (Dana 80W-90)and the capacity is 2.6 liters and 3.5 liters if you have the 10.25 Ring gear. Good luck and hope this helps.

How to change the rear axleshaft oil seal


Jack it up, put it on stands. Remove the wheel, the brake drum, the differential cover, the axle clip, and pull your axle. Remove and replace the seal, install new diff gasket, re-install, and refill oil.
