    Hey guys, new here and i got a question. My 1992 Silverado is leaking in the front passenger axle seal. Could some one give me specific instructions on how to replace this? Any special tools I HAVE to have to do the job? also is it something i could tackle by myself or should i just take it in to a mechanic?
    I know my way around tools and also know that if not done right it can cause bigger issues later on.
    Thanks YALL!!!

    It's pretty straight forward. I haven't experienced this myself yet, but I seem to recall my buddy only takeog the upper ball joint and brake caliper loose. The axle pulls out far enough that way you can replace the seal and put it back together

    So I shouldn't need any specialty tools. I'm hoping! Lol
