    ive had a loud squeek coming from my rear diff again, thought it was ANOTHER ujoint at first, but now theres a leak coming from between the axle housing and output shaft, ive heard some stuff about it being the pinion nut and seal, and ive already got the stuff from a previous occasion, what do u guys think? and to replace it, i understand u jus take a torque wrench and apply to the nut until it comes loose, then use the same amount of torque to tighten the nut as it did to loosen it?? the quicker the better, and thanks a million for all your help....
