    The front axle seals are leaking on my 1987 Chevy K-5 Blazer.
    Could anyone tell me how to replace these axle seals?

    Thanks :o)

    It's a big job. Basically, the entire front end has to come apart. [​IMG] You have to remove the rotors and spindles, so you can pull out the axle shafts. Then drop out the diff and then you can finally see those seals. It's a heck of a lot of work just to replace 2 little $5 seals. [​IMG]
