well, if the seal leaks , it can be many reasons. 1: bad seal. 2: damage to seal bore hole done by not using proper tool and scraping the bore. (#1 , install fail) 3: cheap flebay no name parts ? or seals. (junk is junk) 4: shaft is damaged, 5: bearing worn allowing (bouncing) seal to get beat to death.
good seals fail for #5 reason, top reasons, all machines.
this all depends on if the truck is a 4wheel drive, are you looking for the seal at the transfer case where driveshaft goes or seal on the back of tranny where shaft goes, i assume from what you said its 2wd and you want seal at rear of tranny where driveshaft goes, heres the seal # and napa auto parts has it or you can have another auto part store cross number to there seal, good day seal # ATP 14982 and heres a picture of it, this is for a 4.0 engine ,
Look for a leak below the water pump.
If so we believe the inter seal of the water pump to be the failure, this will result in a coolant weep coming from the weep hole near the center shaft of the water pump.
not worth the effort, the joint is probably worn anyway, the whole axle shaft only costs probably 80 bucks remanufactured compared to 30 bucks for a boot kit you have to dismantle the axle to install with special tools anyway.
this easy, drain oil from gear box remove that drive shaft (u need a ball joint splitter)
replace gearbox seal, pry out old 1 with screw driver, gently tap new in, oil edge of new seal 1st. replace oil, ps dont leave to long as will damage gearbox when lack of oil
No clamp, it sounds like it is just a bad seal.
Just remove the drive shaft and pry out the old one and tap in a new one. very easy on those cars. juts make sure you put some tran fluid on the rubber part of the seal before installing the drive shaft or it can tear it.
