I used the same write-up. It's an easy job with lots of steps. If you tackle it yourself you will save lots of cash. The seals are only a few bucks for each side, you'll need new diff fluid, and a diff gasket or RTV.

When you pull the brake calliper, hang it from the shock tower with either a wire coat hanger or bungie cord so you don't strain the brake lines.

It's basically 1/2 a brake job + 1/2 a u-joint replacement + 1/2 a tire rotation, all to do 5 minutes of work. If you have any of those jobs to do at the same time, buy some beer and have a buddy hang out and help.

Okay...

So, everywhere I read about this problem people are always out wheelin'. I was driving on a flat (very flat) I-94 for 2,000 miles. And when I got to my midway point, I started getting leakage. Since I am in-between point A and point B, is it okay to drive it? Since the original few drops, it hasn't dropped much else. The write up looks like more work than I can do with the limited tools I carry with me. And I'd hate to take it to a shop because my gues would be I'm going to be about $200 deep or so.

Thanks again everyone!

If you've got a long trip, top off the fluid and go. If the leak gets worse you might have an issue. The only real concern is running out of oil.

Thanks Zen, I just checked the fluid level and it is still full so I'll keep an eye on it.
