So my rear drive shaft seal started leak, i pulled the entire unit to replace. Now that i have it out is there anything else i should be looking at replacing or checking. i did order the other o rings and bearing just in case. The piñon is nice and tight no side to side or up and down movement and no oil past the piñon. not sure what else to check as I've never done a repair like this before. any tips or advise on what i should be doing since its out. do i need to regrease the bearing or piñon or can i just use the gear oil or nothing is required?

Can't get the oil seal out. I have a seal puller and I've tried different sized screw drivers. What's the trick to get them out? I'm afraid to use to much pressure as I do not want to damage the piñon or anything else behind the seal.

I use a smaller sized screw driver and puncature the metal face of the seal, out near the outer edge of the seal.

Don't drive the screw driver down the edge of the seal, or you will score the allow housing.

This will buckle the seal shape and then you can lever the seal out.

The nut sits just behind the seal so you won't damage the bearing, but make sure you don't damage the alloy housing!!.

No need to do anything with the bearings, as they run in gear oil.

 

And don't forget the pinion washer. :D

Make sure you install a new wear ring on the driveshaft yoke.

went to auto zone, a 34 mm 12 point socket seemed to be the best fit that i found, Thoughts, is there a better size option? i was also thinking about using the old wear ring but its cut in half so i don't know if that will work or not. i did go ahead bought a spare wear ring for the front just in case, i  don't want to use it only to find out it wont work and then its damaged.

I think I have always used a socket as well......seems to work just fine.  The only time it gets tricky is when it gets flush with the flange.....has to be just the right size to push it slightly past flush.  I always try and put it right where the old one was......most Ive done aren't flush on the end.

That's the problem, getting them on is easy till you have to go past flush. If that's all the further you go it leaks. I took a pic before I cut the wear ring off. Do you remember what size socket you used?

I sure dont......I have a full set of metric and standard sockets clear up to 36mm/1-1/2", so I just kept grabbing them until I found the right size!  I dont have a spare wear ring in my tool box or I'd check for ya!

You seem to do this fairly often.

If you're not in a big hurry i could make you a steel ring to install the wear rings with.
