Re: Front axle seal replacement?
When I had mine apart I cleaned the inside of the tube using the "washer on a stick" trick and then vacumned out all I could. Those plastic ramps do guide the axle up and through the seal and I'm guessing it is to prevent seal damage. Both of my tubes had "some" oil staining in them, not to the point of dripping but it was obvious that oil had leaked out sometime, I'm guessing when the truck was leaning one way or the other. A check of the diff fluid showed it was filled properly but, get the thing leaned over and theres always a possibility it could leak out, especially if your one of those guys who parks the truck on a side hill for any length of time!!
