    I just bought a set of the new stye inner axle seals that spin within themsleves. I have heard thay can be a liitle more ticky to install and was wondering if anyone has done it and has some advice or tips.

    Thanks

    I used a long dowel through the opposite shaft of where the seal was going to tap it in...In other words, I needed a long shaft to get the passenger side in and shorter one to get the driver side in. The hardest part was getting them started.

    Thanks, yeah I know everything up to putting the new seals in. I have installed the 'standard' ones before but I heard these new ones can be a little more ticky to put in.

    I have one standard and one new style, the standard ones are much thiner so a little easier, but otherwise it is the same thing...just more mashing with the thicker ones:wink1:
