Replacing inner axle seals on Rubicon
I had my gears done last year but they did not want to change the seal, if they are good don't fix em. Well now the right front seal is leaking and this guy wants to charge me to fix what he probably broke in the first place, for those of you that dont know it, they make a stupid little plastic ring that costs $1.50, it goes around the axle at the spline end to help keep the axle centered in the tube so you don't rip the seal, like this guy did. So I have new axle seals and the guides and I'm going to do this myself, is there anything I need to be looking out for when removing the locker, will I need a case spreader or just pop it out with a prybar? Any advice is appreciated.
Consider Obama the lesson many in this country need to learn, the rest of us just have to pay for it!

Stu Olson's awesome website has all kinds of information on how to work on our Jeeps with specific instructions on the D30's inner seals at http://www.stu-offroad.com/axle/d30seals/seal-1.htm.
When you have a choice, buy American made.
I read that write up thanks thought Jerry, mines a dana 44 with a locker, is there much different. I just posted about it being overfull with watery oil hoping maybe that has something to do with it but i'm sure ill have to change the seals

I replaced with M1 synthetic LT, not really worth the $ (Redline is cheaper). M1 is found everywhere so I'm paying for accessibility / fluid compatibility.
