I will git-r-dun soon....the leak is not THAT bad, will have to be topped off about once a week till I get it fixed. Just have tO find the time for me and my buddy to drop the axle. And the hub has to wait till I get the money!

All well then ? If you look at all the posts lots of money can be spent on things that don't need replacing. All meant well though..and even certified mechanics can have trouble diagnosing things. FWD cars and 4X4 trucks have rubber boots protecting the bearings while allowing for up and down movement..these should be looked at regularly...dirt and water getting in there will wreck the bearing quickly. Off roading in water,sand,mud,etc. will take a quicker toll of even the U-joints. That is one thing with a 2WD..rear drive with non-independent rear end...no expensive CV joints..rubber boots...transfer case..etc. Bearings are all simple/not expensive. 4X4 is great...but you don't really need it if you only drive on the road...if you can't get to where-ever in snow..the roads are probably closed..provided you have good snow tires. But you do want to have the Traction Lok (limited slip) diff.

why does the axle have to be dropped to put in a new diff gasket?

LOL. Sounds like you've got my luck...thought I got my starter fixed.....then my key don't want to turn on my truck and then my truck wants to run raggidy....


Did you put on your bearings? Have you done it before?

Have someone to drive it slow while you walk along and see where the sound comes from.
