Front Axle Seal Replacement
The driver's side front axle tube seal/dust boot needs replacing. The outer rubber part has separated from the inner part that is on the output yoke on the driver's side. It appears that you can take off the caliper, caliper bracket, rotor, and four nuts holding the hubassembly to the steering knuckle, and then the whole hub assembly with the u-joints and yoke will slide out of the axle tube so that the seal/dust boot can be replaced. Am I correct on this? Also, what are the torque values on the caliper bracket bolts and 4 hubassembly retaining nuts? Finally, what is the part number for the seal?
Thanks in advance for assistance.
