Locally my Auto zone parts store has loaner tools for this situation. Rental stores are another good source for that tool that you hope to only use once.

There's not any special tools. You need a socket to fit the nut on the end of the axle and a wrench to take the nut and bolt off the bottom ball joint that slides through the control arm. Take a bar, pry down on lower control arm, pulling ball joint out, then pull the upper part out by hand, away from the car, slide axle out of the bearing assembly. Take a pry bar, put between trans and axle, give it a swift, quick ****. The axle should come out. Remember to always put jack stands under the car and be safe. Phil

SOURCE: the seal on the front axle on the passenger side

here is a diagram on how to replace the front pinion seal.
please do not forget to rate and comment about your experience with fixya.

  1. Before servicing the vehicle, please familiarize yourself with safety procedures.
  2. Remove both half shafts.
  3. Mark propeller shaft and pinion flange for installation reference.
  4. Remove front propeller shaft.
  5. Rotate pinion gear three to four times, to verify pinion rotates smoothly.
  6. Record pinion flange rotating torque with an inch pound torque wrench for installation reference.
  7. Hold flange with Holder 6719 and four bolts and washers.
  8. Remove pinion nut.
  9. Remove flange with Remover C-452.
  10. Remove pinion seal with a pry tool.

    67189-dako-g27.gif Pinion seal installer
    67189-dako-g26.gif Tightening the pinion nut
To install:
  1. Apply a light coating of gear lubricant on the lip of pinion seal.
  2. Install seal with Installer C-3972-A and Handle C-4171.
  3. Install pinion flange onto the pinion with Installer C-3718 and holder.
  4. Hold pinion flange with Holder 6719A.
  5. Install new pinion nut and tighten nut until there is zero bearing end-play.

    CAUTION Do not exceed the minimum tightening torque when installing the companion flange at this point. Damage to the collapsible spacer or bearings may result.
  6. Tighten pinion nut to 271 Nm (200 ft. lbs.).

    CAUTION Never loosen pinion nut to decrease pinion bearing rotating torque and never exceed specified preload torque. If preload torque or rotating torque is exceeded a new collapsible spacer must be installed.
  7. Record pinion flange rotating torque, with a torque wrench. Rotating torque should be equal to the reading recorded during removal plus an additional 0.56 Nm (5 inch lbs.).
  8. If rotating torque is low, tighten pinion nut in 6.8 Nm (5 ft. lbs.) increments until rotating torque is achieved.

    CAUTION If maximum tightening torque is reached prior to reaching the required rotating torque, the collapsible spacer may have been damaged. Replace the collapsible spacer.
  9. Install propeller shaft with reference marks aligned.
  10. Install half shafts.

if u have u joints there should not any fluid near your bearing other than grease... if it is leaking anything other than that it is probably brake fluid... i would suggest checking your brake cylinder and brake line leading along side the passenger side

You can do this with wheels hanging free or on ramps. Likely it may be better with wheels hanging though.but do not let the gears turn while you are working. Use a pipe wrench (a large one) to hold the pinion flange from turning. Mark the position of the nut in relation to the pinion shaft this mark is extremely important so don't use anything that may be wiped clean when working. Count the exact number of turns necessary to remove the nut (also very important).Mark the flange position so you can return it to its original position. Tap the flange off with a hammer, etc, pry out the seal and drive the new one back in with an appropriate seal driver In a pinch you can use a 2x4 with a hole in the center for the shaft to go through...I generally wipe a small amount of silicone sealer around the metal part of the seal to prevent seepage as well. The key is to keep the seal square with the housing while installing.
Use the marks you made to put the flange back on. put the nut and washer back on, counting the exact number of turns till you reach the exact number as when you removed it. Though most times it's not necessary, I always use some locktite on threads or use a new nut but with new nut you loose your reference mark. Hold the flange with the pipe wrench while re-installing. I also turn the nut about a 32nd of an inch or less, further than it was before removal.This will change the pinion depth but not so much that it will damage anything. DO NOT go further though!!! Don't forget to re-fill before using. In fact it is good to remove the rear cover first because if you find any metal in the lube perhaps you may want to or need to do something else as a repair.

Lift and support front end on suitable jack stands preferably on frame. Remove right front cv axle, stub shaft, and seal. You will need to pull the right front brake caliper assembly loose and place to the side. Then remove bolts from shock and upper control arm and hub nut to do this. Next, remove axle lock actuator on passenger side of front axle. Place a drain pan underneath front diff cover and remove cover and drain axle. In the center of differential there will be an 8 mm head bolt holding spider gear cross-shaft. Remove bolt and cross-shaft only! Push inner axle in until clip clears inside of passenger spider gear. Set clip aside and push/pull axle shaft straight out to passenger side.

I cannot get the inner bearing on far enough to get the castle nut on the rear axle its the right bearing but it will not fit over the tapered shaft. Any suggestions?


The bearing has to fit if it is the correct one in the correct position & direction. There is about 1/4 of an inch that you have to kind of push a little extra to get the wheel seal to fit upon it's track but other than that, the correct bearing will fit.

Double-Check to see that the inner cone, "large" side is on the inside of the wheel hub, small side to the outside & just the opposite on the outside bearing, large side outward & small side inward. Bearing race needs to be 100% seated & make sure your seal is correctly installed & properly seated. good luck

Do i need any special tools too replace the gears


it does require some special equipment. most likely have the 9.25 axle in the truck which has adjusters on both sides of the differential that are threaded in the housing. these require a special tool to adjust and set proper backlash. also helpful to have a press with bearing pullers/installers. need a dail indicator to set backlash also

In most cases just replacing the seal will repair the leak. Check the seal surface on the axle hub to insure that the surface is not damaged and will damage the new seal.
