    With air tools and the rest of the proper tools, and knowing what you're doing... not too long.

    I'd agree with an hour.

    That site is so fucking annoying! Ad this, ad that, pop-up here, etc. I NEVER click on anything at that site including next page. Ooops, I lied, I click the close window button.

    Agreed... back in the day that place was awesome for tech. But now I don't even go there anymore. Even with all of my pop up blockers and ad blockers I still get random stuff that gets through ...annoying!

    I am registerd over there...but I won't pay to be over there

    just something i did that i couldnt tell if you did.

    When i pull the axles out i support the brake drum so the axle doesnt rest on the seal... it may prevent having to do the job again if you spring a leak

    Preferred method, but if you're gentle it shouldn't bother the seals. Other option is to take the axles out of the housing entirely.

    But to do that you have just added at least another hour or two to the job:

    Dismantle the brakes to get the parking brake cable out
    Disconnect the brake line (and now you have to bleed the brakes)

    If you have to do the rear brakes at the same time then fine, otherwise Tom's got some good tips! :)

    i dont care how gentle you are if you plan on walking away for a few days. like if you dont have a third ready to go...

    leaving the axles sit on the seals would not be good. Better to just support them IMO

    I just slid the axles back into position, so they're resting on their installation lugs.

    Easier than finding a "just the right height" block or box.

    bingo! as easy as that! :p

    i think i will go edit and add a note to do this step if the rear end is going to be a part for any amount of time.

    Good call but the temperatures where you live rubber bands are considered non-elastic!!! lol :) But really micro cracks are the things that propagate in to real cracks so any additional thoughtfulness into not stretching the seals is effort that is not wasted.

    Much like Tom's marking the mating points of the pinion flange to u-joint flange. Technically not required but marking and re-assembling in same position is a sign of a good mechanic.

    Agreed, which is why it's not the "preferred method" ;)

    Also agreed.

    Also agreed, plus this gives you the benefit of not having to disconnect the brake lines.

    Nothing wrong with it, but you'll pardon me if I skip it on trail-fixes.
