That is a project on the more difficult side. It would be difficult for anyone to explain. You should buy the haynes or chilton manual on your truck and follow those instructions.

No leake = job is complete.

Do you think the 'clunk' sound I get on cornering is due to the lock nut being too tight after a dif oil seal change? 1990 Transit 130. Double wheels

I wonder if you have a posi. rear diff. and they didn't put the proper grease in the diff. or didn't put additive in the grease. Without the add. the clutches in the posi. slip and clatter.

I have a 1999 Mercury Grand Marquis. i noticed a little diff fluid coming from the right rear wheel. I changed the wheel seal and axle bearing and put it all back together and filled the rear diff with...

first swap to a front tyre to eliminate that issue

new bearing shouldn't be rumbling
to get the bearing square on and home
did you use a press to fit the bearing to the rear axle
or tube method ?

and did the seal kit have this nifty plastic seal fitter so axle didn;t rip the seal surface

The axle seals are leaking after a diff oil change or thats when it was noticed. are seals a common problem or can it be a bigger problem

They could have already been bad before service and now that the rear diff is full/ maybe overfull they are showing signs of leaking. Check the rear end vent as well, if that is plugged then you will have too much pressure in the rear diff and that will cause seal failure.

My rear pumpkin ball /transfer case is leaking . is there a seal to change

If you are talking about the rear diff case. The seal can be change usually either a rubber gasket or hi temp silicone, just scrape off the old gasket from the diff and the the cover. Make sure its clean before you put on the gasket or silicone whichever its has. Put a good amount of silicone around the diff cover and bolts holes. Make sure to get some rear diff fluid and fill it back up w/funnel. Its either on the diff cover w/ a rubber cover or on the side of the diff itself w/ 3/8 ratchet. Fill till up till it starts to drip out then tighten back up.

Most likely, you need another rear diff. to be sure, the old part will need to be removed and inspected for damage. Sounds like some metal or a bearing got ruined from lack of lubrication, like a chipped tooth or a binding bearing. Make sure the rear driveshaft u-joints are OK. while you're at it. Have the Discovery put on a rack with the rear axle lifted, so the rear wheels can be spun by hand to listen to the rear diff. Sorry about your troubles

Too complicated to advise, to set up a diff you need to be experienced. Either get a skilled engineer to set the diff correctly, or change the full axle from another vehicle. If you dont set the diff correctly, it will whine and prematurely fail.
