    This seal on the front driveshaft is torn and pulled out when I done my lift. Now grease is spitting out of it. my spacer should be here tomorrow, can I buy and replace this seal myself?

    either just dont worry about it and keep it greased when you grease your u-joints or put a rubber boot on it covering the whole thing. I pull my truck apart enough when building new things and I cant remember the last time I replaced the seal. meaning I dont run one at all.
