driveshaft to rear d35

i was wondering how to replace (or if i have to take it to someone) the seal and bearing in the front of my dana 35 because it just started leaking pretty good and i can feel a little vibration back there. if i can do it myself i will but i dont really know much about dealing with gears but am willing to learn

I don't think a pinion seal replacement is for beginners. You have to torque that bolt to a certain amount and that involves checking the drag with no carrier installed to be correct.
I know many just zip the nut back on but torque it wrong and you’re rebuilding your diff.

you need an inch/pound wrench to measure the rotational force it takes to spin the carrier with the tires off, then when you put the nut back on you wanna torque the nut untill it takes the same force to rotate it... or you can just take an impact and go for it but you risk having to rebuild ur diff again very soon

Definitely not a beginner project. To see what's involved here's a pretty good video. It's not a Dana diff but you'll get a good understanding of what's involved.

To change the pinion seal I only ever had to take the nut off the yolk and slide the yolk off. Doesn't that bolt only effect the yolk itself? I thought there was another nut behind that that needed the pre load. Am I wrong?

^^ I think you right, not 100% sure, I never worried about it when I did mine, I impacted it on and torqued to specs and all was good, not a differential wizard, tearing abart those this week so should be a good lerning curve... woot
