Ok so i replaced my rear pinion seal to stop a diff leak right there. The leak didnt stop. I got scared and thought it might be the pinion bearing that was causing the leak. I checked my driveshaft and it has no play horizontally or vertically when pushing and pulling on it. Also there is no "whine" noise in my jeep when accelerating or decelerating. Does this 100% mean that the pinion bearing is still good? Is it a good chance i just didnt get the seal in without damaging it slightly? Thanks a lot!
I used to sell auto parts back in the day. It used to be a Chicago rawhide part. I think its skf now. it's a thin piece of I think stainless steel that you would put on the yoke where the seal rides. I'm not sure if you would have any luck at auto zone or oreillys cuz if it ain't in the computer they ain't got it.
