Pinion seal advice

Okay well I realized my pinion seal is leaking, figures after I put the clutch In something else would happen lol, I've never attempted to do one but I was thinking it can't be to difficult.

Re: Pinion seal advice

I think the hard part is getting the pinion back in and set correctly to avoid gear whine or bad wear patterns

I am not sure if you have to remove anything that alters that in doing a pinion seal but I bet you will have to... thus you may have to let a shop that knows how to setup the rear do it... good time to change gears though

Well I worked at a shop and the master tech there told me he would do it for 25 bucks I just have to purchase the parts but I am not sure if just the seal alone is all to difficult to do, funds are tight spent saved money on my parts for the clutch

Drop driveshaft. Remove pinion nut after measuring the threads that can be seen on the top side of nut. This is important so you have the same amount of drag and pinion gear play. You can also count threads. Once you remove nut with impact gun you will need a puller to remove the knuckle/flange for the driveshaft. Then just pop the seal out and replace. Put all back together. Pretty simple and you dont have to mess with shims or anything

Make sure you get friction modifier! It mixes with the gear oil. I think the rroyal purple gear oil has it in it already but not for sure. You need it though so dont forget

Royal purple does have it so it's not necessary to add it.
