Had to replace the outter oil seals on my 96. They were gushing gear oil whenever it was parked.

Anyways, got everything torn down to put the new seals in and realized, I had no tool to push it in propperly. I didn't have a socket that would fit the large seal.

Pondered driving it in with a punch or a screwdriver, but i was really afraid I would damage the seal.

Finally broke the top off a WD-40 can, Put an extension into a 17mm 1/2" drive socket. tapped the socket into the top of the WD-40 can. (Can has a hemispherical bottom) and used that to drive my seals. :eek:

Wholey 1/2 A$s!:p

Are you talking about the front diff seals? I had to do the pass side 3 times til Chris K helped me out the last time. I used a Chef Boyardee Beefaroni can to drive it in. You have to drive it in just right. Too far in, and it'll leak, not far enough in, and it'll leak.
