    Thought I'd share this trick I devised for installing the new inner hub seal (p/n 710573) and CV dust seal (p/n 90304-A0001)

    Utilizing the old seals, to install the new ones.
    Old CV dust seal on left, old inner hub seal on right

    First install the new CV dust seal using the old inner hub seal

    Place the inner hub seal over the new CV dust seal
    20161110_185612_zpswdutstqa_7eccbe2bb7ad12a1a8a654658d573cbb1e05087d.jpg
    Use a piece of scrap wood and a hammer and tap on CV dust seal until fully seated

    Fully seated

    Next install the new inner hub seal, utilizing the old CV dust seal by placing the old seal over the inner hub seal and place in position

    Next use the hammer and tap all around until fully seated

    Done! Hopes this helps, it made it pretty slick without seal damage

    That's a nice trick. Thanks for posting.

    I'm so excited this is in my near future!

    Anyone know if it is possible to replace these outer CV axle dust seals without pulling the axle from the front differential? I'm about to do these next week along with my bearings and would prefer not to pull the axle out if I don't have to. It looks like the OP left them on his vehicle, but I can't tell for sure. Most of the other documentation I've been able to find shows the axle out.

    You can leave it there. It will be much easier to pull the axle out of the spindle tho!

    I did not remove the CV, however I did separate the lower ball joint from the spindle.

    Great tip OP! I used it today, but I tweaked it a bit for the inner hub seal. I combined your trick with what I did last time. Used a 6” clamp and 2 scrap pieces of wood to squeeze mine in. I always fight with it when hammering around the horn and side to side. The clamp method keeps it from popping out where you aren’t hammering. Hope this helps someone else. Thanks again OP!

    Any idea why the outter CV seals came COVERED in some black grease? Is it just to stop rusting while it's in the packing?

    Are you trying to replace the entire CV axle and go through Toyota for OEM parts, and you're also replacing all seals while you're at it?

    Let's not get ridiculous here. I just know the answer to 100% of all things ever asked :D

    Looks like you should be good then. Unless you're wanting to replace the seal on the spindle.

    After the seals are replaced should I put a bit of grease around them? Seems like there should be something inside there. Also, grease or anti seize on the splines? I’ve heard of people using both.

    Inside the joint is all gear oil so I wouldnt put any extra additives.

    As a side note, If you are doing the seal, do yourself a favor and go out and buy a 2$ pvc 2" reducer. Fits right over the seal lip and you can hammer her in nice and even .
