    Rears are pressed on the axle so have to pull axle and get a machine shop to do it - do both sides at the same time as if one goes other soon to follow.

    Thanks guys. I had already pulled R side off and replaced only the bearing seal.The seal from factory had a gouge in it and
    thought that was the problem. The bearing looked fine to me and my friend but I’m no mechanic.We put it back and 3 months later
    it’s leaking a little bit behind the brake pads? I don’t know if it’s the bearing or hub assembly.

    Yeah, PULL the bearing.
    Do NOT press the axle.

    This is one job I’ll be paying someone to do.
    I don’t have the time, or want to risk messing up other stuff.

    Check your diff breather, if it’s stuck closed, it will blow the seal out.
    Mine did this and I didn’t enjoy the experience.

    I’d also recommend looking at and upgrading the rear diff breather. It’s in a horrible spot and needs to rerouted to a higher position at the very minimum even on a perfectly stock pavement pounder.

    Does my truck have diff breather? It’s just a 2wd. That would be great if that was all it i. Like I said
    Seal was gouged from factory and bearing looked good and had no play in it.

    I guess if it’s clogged it could have blown my new seal out.
