ok i was out crawling underneath the front end and saw a hard plastic ring with a groove all the way around it in the middle. the ring was, forgive me for my terminology here but.....it was between the end of the axle and the u joints i believe, just hanging there it would spin in a circle freely. not sure how long its been like this. it is the same on both sides. any suggestions on what it is and what i have to do about it. thank you.

it is a part of one of your axle seals.. they are all probably shot. Mine were when I did my Ball Joints.
I replaced them,,,dont know if it's worth tearing down JUST for them,,if that is all thats bad. The ones between the differential housing and the
U Joints is just a dust seal I think..does not hold oil or anything.

The one he is talking about is the seal on the differential side I think....between the diff housing and the U joints...nothing to do with the vacume there,,,right?
