    That is pretty good. I paid ~$320 to have mine rebuilt locally with all new Spicer U-joints a back in May. Not much more tho get an entirely new assembly.

    Hey John, where's that post/thread you made about the diff vent/breather replacement? I can't seem to find it

    This one?

    Funny thing is I replaced the breather valve, then purchased the the parts for the real axle seal and bearing and guess what?

    Now the seal stopped leaking after replacing the breather valve, :)))

    Thanks for the link! Crazy that cured your axle seal leak. I wonder how many other trucks would have benefited from the same thing? That's definitely a much easier fix!

    I think I caught it early, the pressure buildup must have been pushing the seal out and then coming back in after the pressure was relieved through the seal till I replaced the breather.

    Got luck, I have 250.00 worth of bearings, seals, gaskets and shoes I get to return to Toyota now, :))

    So I just went to buy one of those diff vents and it had some coupon code come up for 25% off max $25 discount (PSAVE25) if you pay with a CC instead of PP. Pretty sweet.... So I added a set of headlight housings I had in my watched items and got 25% off those too!
