Most of the effort is in halfshaft removal. The seals are simple enough once the halfshafts are out.RickO5 said:Now its pretty clear its coming from where the driver side half-shaft is inserted. How easy of a job is replacing that seal?
Quite excessive. I wonder how much of the retaining circlips are left, if any.Also, I noticed that each halfshaft can slide more than half an inch in and out of the diff. While I expect movement, that seemed excessive... Is it?
I have seen some quite worn and thin circlips. While the halfshafts are out, check how freely the sliding joints move.
Good enough.Diff oil, I know its GL5, is 75-90 okay?
Considering the dubious attachment of the halfshafts in the diff, I would be driving like a granny until rectified.I was thinking of doing the work when I dropped the diff out to replace the mounts, and just filling up the fluid now and then in the meantime, any problems I might run into there?
