Unfortunately you will have to remove the axles on that model of truck to access the brakes and it is necessary to replace the seals at this time because you will probably cut the old seals upon removal.I would recommend that if you are going to check them you at least need to clean and de glaze the old shoes if you don't replace them!!!! make sure to use a good quality brake cleaner.

SOURCE: rear axle leaking

Block the front tires. Break the rear lugs loose. Jack up the rear of the truck at the center if possible. remove the wheels & brake drums. Remove the brake shoes,return springs & all the other hardware. Remove the differential cover & drain oil. If you have a posi the next step sucks. You need to remove the threaded pin from the housing & remove the axle retaining clips. All the while,being carefull of the spring in the posi unit. If no posi,then same procedure,minus the "pucker factor". After the axle is out,take a large flat blade screw driver or pry bar & pop the seal out. Keep in mind the axle bearing is probably gone too , so that's another procedure. Keep it apart,you'll be glad you did.

Yes you will need to pull the axle to get that seal out. You will need to pull tire open punkin or gear case there will be a C clip holding the axle inplace pull this out and very carefully slide the axle out the seal is in the axle housing

1994 buick roadmaster, oil leaking out of right rear axle, checked brake fluid is full, could it be differential oil leak @ end of axle??


If what you see leaking is very oily and does not evaporate, likely it is an axle seal. If there are no leaks in the brake system, that's the only thing back there that can leak. If the axle bearing is going away, it can damage the seal so make sure you look for small shiny metal flakes behind the seal when you replace it or you will be doing the job again very soon. Can't remember...that IS rear wheel drive right?

1990 k3500 dually, driver side seal leaking, just replaced, but still leaking. What am I missing or any tips or tricks? Is there a 2 piece seal for this available only from dealer like some of the newer...


dont be offended, but are you sure you installed it in the right direction (it only works one way) did you test fit it before you installed it (its allways a good practice to do that first) did you see any worn areas on the hub or axle housing?

Pinion seal leaking


check your rear diff vent if pluged clean it out and clean up the pinion seal.sometimes if the leak is caused by pluged vent and has not been leaking long once vent is clean sometimes the leak will stop.there is not a specific torque amount because it is rotational torque(how hard to turn pinion).there is a crush sleve on the pinion and if torqued too tight or too loose brg preload will be wrong and brg damage could result.mark and remove drive shaft.remove rear wheels,brakes,axles.so when turning pinion you dont have any drag from brakes or axles.mark the position of the yoke on the pinion.remove yoke,replace seal,reinstall yoke be sure to replace pinion nut.tighten nut until it takes the exact same amount of force to turn pinion as before taking original pinion nut off.hope this helps.
