Dana 30 Axle Seal Replacement Advice
Hey guys, my driver side axle has been leaking fluid into the knuckle, so I figured my axle seals where going bad. I called the shop and was quoted 500+ to change the seals, so I decided that I am probably capable enough to do this all myself, and should have every tool I need anyways.
I have never been in a differential before, so I was wondering if anyone would have any advice going into this process.
I have a Danna 30 front, with an ARB installed, 4.56 gears.
Its a 99 TJ, and Im not sure what axles are in it, Im going to call the shop that originally did the work to see if they can help me out, (the truck was set up when I bought it.)
Am I correct in saying that the type of axle seal needed is specific to what kind of axle is in there?
and my last question is what should I use to reseal the differential when Im all done, a gasket, or some sort of calking?
thank you all so much for any help, tips, recommendations or advice.
