Question about 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee
Smoke from rear passenger side wheel after driving a bit, also feeling like wheel is out of round, bad rear axle bearing? 2000 jeep grand cherokee laredo
Both of my rear axel seals are leaking on my 2001 Jeep Lorado. I am preparing to repair the seals thisweekend but before I do, I need to know the appropriate steps in doind so. My main concern is the ABS. Will I have to disconnect the ABS gears at all?

The bearing does not always have to be really bad for the seal to fail. Centrifugal force will throw axle grease outward where it gets on the rotor. That can make it feel like the rotor is out of round. If grease got on the brake pads I'd replace them and perhaps even the rotor. As far as the caliper being frozen, possible....check it out when you have it apart. You can have more than one shoe untied at the same time. Not always, but it can happen.
When replacing the seal make sure you put some grease on the lip before putting the axle back in. by doing that it won't fail from dry running before the diff lube reaches it.
