pinion seal

Any advise what else I should look for when I change it out? And should I go through the drive shaft or go from the differential cover and remove gears? I think it would be easier to go through the drive shaft though

Not understanding what you are wantin to do here....I've never changed gears myself but have watched a lot of videos on it and "gears" can only come out through the differential cover. The pinion bolt has to be removed from the driveshaft side before you can remove the pinion thought the diff opening.

EDIT:
Just re-read and it makes more sense...I still think you need to go through the diff though. Not sure how you would get the seal between the pinion and the fromt of the diff housing with out taking it completely out. Are they flimsy?? So that you could get it through the hole without taking it all out? Will the pinion move enough for you to get it in with the gears in?? I think you will have to remove the gears...

You just need to remove the driveshaft. Grab a seal puller (basically just a hook) and pull it out, then hammer in the new one.

I already have the new one and they are pretty stiff. But I have a guy helping me out now that knows a good bit about rear ends. So I will update whenever I get it done. But anymore advise on this let me know!
