First i would check to see if the axle air vent was clear if its not the oil is vary heavy and expands a lot this will build up pressure inside the houseing and cause the axle seals to leak if you can clear it the problem may fix it self its 80 90 weight oil thats thick stuff. If not you need to remove the rear wheels and brake drums then you have to remove the cover from the rear carriar catch the oil. Look inside the carriar houseing you will see the ends of the axles theres a small clip on each axle called a c clip remove them you can pull them out with your fingers. Then you can slide the axles out past the brake plates pry the seals out you might as well replace the bearings when your doing but thats up to you. Lube and install the bearings then the new seals you will need new seals lube the seal lips and vary carefuly slide the axle in taking care not to damage the seal install the c clip do the other side put a new gasket on the rear carriar tighten bolts to 20 ft lbs. Refill carriar 80 90 weight oil through filler plug on the side of the houseing until it just starts to run out hole put the plug in the rear drums on and wheels

Can I use a 97 GMC Jimmy brake booster to replace a 98 GMC Jimmy brake booster? I'm buying a vehicle and need this part but found a 97 way cheaper than the 98 and they look the same! TIA


I don't if that differs between manufacturers? I looked at rockauto.com for your brake booster, cardone part for your vehicle lists 97--2005 for your vehicle, brake booster.
If all the hook-ups are the same as the one your looking at, I don't know why it wouldn't work?
You know how it is, I see nothing from here.

How do I remove the rear axle to replace the seal 1996 jimmy


You will have to remove the differential cover on the rear end, in the center of the gear cluster you'll have to rotate your axle until it exposes the ends of the axle shafts, push in the axles as far as you can from the brake pad assembly area, then, there this a C clips that slips into a groove on the end of the axle, you'll have to reove the C clip to pull out the axle.
