This is a fairly involved job. You will have to remove the brake assy, then seperate the ball joint and remove the axle assy. You will need a seal puller to remove the axle seal (At trans I assume) and a seal driver or something flat to install the seal. You will also need a 32mm socket ( if my memory is correct ) for the axle nut and a torx or hex socket for the brake caliper and a splitting fork for the balljoint. Be sure to tourque the axle nut to spec when reinstalling or you will be replacing a wheel bearing next. Hope this helps...Good Luck.

1992 f150 front axle to diff. seal replacement


OK, you must remove the front axle assembly to access the axle flange and then the seal, follow the instructions at the link but once the axle is out remove the axle flange from the front diff and replace the axle seal, use a seal driver and lube the new seal with lithium grease (white grease). You will need an air impact to get the flange nut off, replace it with a new one (do not reuse) and do not over tighten it. Cinch it down and then go about 1/8 more of full nut rotation to preload carrier bearing setting then spike in place. Ford F150 Front Axle Replacement Part 1

How much should it cost me to have the left front axle seal replaced?


The premium replacement part for this is about $22.00. I would expect labor to be around 3 hours estimated in their magic book of hours. You can expect this to cost somewhere around 300.00 to 350.00. If you are handy at all and have tools you can do this for a few swear words and about 3 to 4 hours for about 100.00. I say 100.00 because there will be minor things that come up besides the part itself.

1999 dodge cummins 2500 front axel seals


you need to pull off wheels,brakes, rotor /unit hub bearing, both axles and intermediate shaft, as well as the vac disconnec ton the front axle tube. if only the right side leaks then only then only pull the right axle and intermediate shaft and vac disco. it is a trick with a miller tool to replace the seal. the left side seal is inside the diff and the carrier has to come out to replace it. pete
