Need some help with a leak from the axle.

I posted this in the TJ tech forum but I'm hoping one of you SD experts may be able to help.

D30 passenger side seal

Looks like leak from passenger side axle seal. I just changed the seal on my YJ, and it was somewhat of a Pain. Hardest part was getting the new seal back in (straight). Unless it is dripping a lot and you can see it on the ground I would keep driving. Search Stu-offroad.com and he has great write up on how to fix.
Good luck

The carrier has to come out to replace TJ axle seals.

D-30 Axle Shaft Seal Replacement - 1


It's not as hard a job as you would think but it will still probably take all day, if you have never done it before..

I haven't had one up here in a while. Perhaps it is that time? I used to host them pretty regularly.
