Folks, I have a '95 Cherokee Sport. I seem to have developed a leak in the front right axle. I've pulled axles on rear diffs before, but never on the front end of my Jeep. The type I've worked on in the past are of the c-clip variety. Wondering how tough a job this will be to replace the seal, and while I'm in there, what else would be a good idea to replace?
this is so frustrating my axle started leaking today drivers side, so I come here to read about job difficulty and other info. so I figured ok got the knowledge and need the parts. well getting the parts is the issue. I went to auto zone, napa, norwoods, advance auto parts... all said they do not have the parts or can't find the parts number.
so I am thinking why is it hard to find a axle seal for a dana 30 axle, these axles are not only found in jeeps... so if some one can give me a part number for a auto parts store located in new jersey it would be greatly appreciated.
I know I could just order the seal from a online parts store but i want to get the job done over the weekend, I don't want to spend a small fortune on gear oil just to have to leak out while I wait for the parts to arrive
You may be able to get those from the dealer, otherwise you will likely have to order them.
