    Ok so I'm new to tw and I was wondering if any of you have or know the part number for the front axle seals. My father was helping me swap out a cv axle and it was a real pain in the rear so we just went to town on it and damaged the inner seal

    Good luck with them, if you dont have a slide hammer it will be harder to get out the cv axels. Saves you alot of money though, so worth it.

    Some shit I got on craigslist
    I had to change both of mine after a horrible stuck in a deep mud hole. I believe I got instructions from TTORA. Basically once you get the CV's out, pop the old seals out with a flat head screw driver, or claw hammer (very carefully), and tap the new one in using a 2x4 block and rubber hammer to make sure you dont put them in too far or unevenly. I just stuck it in part way by hand, placed the block on the diff oil seal and tapped in a ciruclar motion until they were in. Havent had any leaks since.

    Driverside is a 12. The passenger side is 13 and a little bigger.
