Pinion seal leak?

How difficult is it to replace a pinion seal leak? I'm almost positive this is the problem on my car. Do I need any special tools? THANX!!!

Easy, you'll need a torque wrench.

Lol. I'm in Salinas too. You kinda do need special tools and some knowledge. It's not as easy as it may seem. There is an active thread in the New Edge forum right beneath this section dealing with this very issue. Its Njstanger's thread. Diff leak or something like that. It will give you some insight as to what's involved with the job. If you choose to have your seal professionally replaced, I recommend Williams Equipment in Salinas. They just rebuilt my rearend and did an excellent job.

Thanx for the recommendation do you know at how much I might be paying for this kind of job?

Pick up a package of new crush sleeve washes at the parts store.
