has anyone done this, how does it come out. I tis the passenger side that is leaking.

does the ring and pinion have to come out, or can it be taken out via the steering knuckle....

any info would be greatly appreciated!

if it's like my dana 30,79 cj, the axle just slides out, the only attachment is on the hub.

i have a 89 cherokee...pull the axle shaft out...the hub is attatched...pull the diff cover off, and punch out the seal from the diff...then you have to put the seal back in thru the diff...you cant do if without the diff cover off

you have to take out the carrier thats it then hammer out the seal or use a pry bar thats after you take the diff apart then put new seals in their easy but it takes time becuase you have to pull the diff apart[cheers]

I've never pulled apart a diff before. is it a big job.

I've also just thought about upgrading to dana 44's front and rear.
