    sup guys, i think its about that time i change my leaking seals from my 84 RN60. its my first time doing this so besides the inner seal what other components should i change while im in there? by the way this is the seal im looking at TIMKEN Part # 710070. can someone verify that it is the right one? the leak drips down into the inside of my tires.

    When it stops dripping birfield soup that just means the gear oil level has gotten below the level of the seals. No worries.

    definitely use the marlin eco-seals, they're MUCH better than any of the others! i've never had one leak yet!

    their full kit includes everything you need to rebuild the axle. its a bit more expensive than the competitors but it really is superior.

    Yea i would just save up and rebuild the whole axle at once. 180$ really isn't bad considering your getting top-quality bearings and all new seals...basically have a new axle when your done. As long as your hubs are un-locked and you leave it in 2wd, your not hurting anything by waiting
