Drive shaft seals replaced!

Replaced all 4 drive shaft seals. Front diff and rear engine side were leaking, front diff was worst. Ordered new drive shaft boots and o rings. Boots were decent but most O-Rings were cracking. Figured just replace them all for good measure. For factory 2008, they did their job.

Also how do I know how to align the 2 parts of the rear drive shaft properly?


I see a D on one part and a W on the other.

The grease fittings ended in 2007 so you won't see any on any after that. Just line-up the yokes and you will be OK. Like this:

Thatís what I figured but, they arenít level on a table, Which means they are out of phase?? Maybe it doesnít matter.

Seal replacements were easy. Tapped the rears in and the front engine with small taps and correct sockets. The front basically pushed in by hand.
