    Well I think it's time to replace the rear pinion seal on my 10bolt. Anybody that has done this before, what's it like and should I attempt it? Also, is it hard to get the yoke and old seal out and are any special tools needed?

    Thanks guys

    Just did it, i did it on my dana 44 so it might be different but im not sure. it wasnt hard but the seal was a bitch to get out. no special tools but your gunna need a big scket for the pinion nit and a big ol screw driver to pry the seal out. look my nme up in the search i just asked about this a week ago

    Wow , I'd forgotton all about replacing mine like a month ago, it was simple, the only thing I was concerned about was how badly you have to mangle the old one to get it out, made me think I was doing it wrong, but it worked fine, just make sure you get the new one started straight and not at an angle and just slowly work it in w/ a block of wood or something similar...
