    Can anyone give me pointers on changing out the axle seals? The seals on by '82 (10-bolt) rear axle are seeping and getting the brakes oily. Not good for stopping! How difficult of a job is it? Any special tools needed? I'm assuming that there is some sort of clip or latch that holds the shaft in at the differential. Are they difficult to get out? What else besides seals, oil, differential gasket and new brake shoes will be needed? Any help would be appreciated.
