    my 97 yukon is leaking gear lube out of the front driverside diff seal. its also starting to tick somewhere in the front end with wheelspeed, so im guessing a bearing went bad and busted the seal.

    anyway, how much should i expect to pay for this? its not something im comfortable doing, and im going on a road trip in the next couple of weeks. i called the only stealership around that does quality work (still pricey), and they quoted me $270 total for the seal.

    help? /forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif

    sounds about right, its a sealed unit and real easy to replace yourself, eventually it will lock up on you so better get it fixed. They got us over a barrel with those, who hires these engineers?
