Got a pinion seal leak...
 
found it today, any ideas on how much it should run, talked to a guy I know at ford, said an hour of labor plus the seal... so not to bad from the sound of that.

this is the seal where the driveshaft meets the differential right? if so, replace it yourself its not a hard task.

The 8.8 rear used a crush spacer to set pinion bearing preload. The correct way to replace a pinon seal is to replace the crush sleeve too. You have to torque the pinion nut down to several hundred foot pounds and measure preaload, then keep torqing the pinion nut down till you reach the preload spec, too far and you get to do it all over again with a new crush sleeve.

I doubt you got the tools to do it. This might be a case of letting the dealer do it is a good idea.

Or you can replace the crush sleeve with a solid spacer and shims.

if you have a lift., torquing= no problem

If you don't have spaghetti arms then 200+ ft/lbs of torque isn't tough.

This is definately one job where having the right tools is a virtual requirement.

SpectorV 01-03-2005 10:55 PM
