Took the Jimmy in for new front inner axle seals (everyone on here said it is NO FUN to do yourself) at the local 4X4 shop the other day. Ended up buying new spindles, bearings, seals, 1 stub shaft, both u-joints at the wheels, and they had to "repair" my inner shafts so they would seal... Needless to say, we're not quite at the $200 mark that was originally estimated. How often do you folks repack your bearings? I replaced these bearings about 2 years/20K ago. Haven't been offroad more than 4 or 5 times, never immersed in water- Hell, it doesn't even RAIN here! It was finished yesterday, I'm picking it up today. Haven't got the final cost yet, forecast to be somewhere around $800. Ouch! Now I have to find someone to pull my tranny and x-fer case- my tranny input shaft is leaking like crazy! GUZZLES GAS BUT IT'S FREE AND CLEAR!!!
