I contemplated that from what it looks like you have to remove the pinion bolt to access the seal. I don't have the tools to my disposal to re install the set the proper bearing pre-load unless it's just a torque wrench. local shop wants $250 for it. sadly part it like $18. but I rather have it done right instead of guessing with did I pre-load the bearing right..

Also when I have the seal replaced should I replaced the bearings too?
