payj90 Or instead of messing with that little d30 you could up grade to mayb a 44=). kill two birds with one stone, fix the leak and get rid of that stupid vacumn accuator.

rebelBullDawg325 if it has the vaccuum accuator which i think you described it as having. it is a disconnect. and like joe said. easiest way to do the seals is a completely dissamble it then re-do it. make sure you clean the axle tubes out really good after you take everything apart. this way you wont tear up your new seals

First things first. Is a disconnect axle or a NON Disconnect??? It should be a disconnect if its in a YJ. Looking from in front of the axle, there are 2 seals. One is on the outer side of the disconnect box, and the other is on the inner side of the driver side. The easiest way to replace these is to completely dis-assemble the axle and go at from the opposite side. You will need to remove the carrier to do the inner driver side anyway.

jeeperman Is there any scoring on the axle shaft, if so, it may be eating seals, or just not sealing in the first place. I would check that before I installed the new seals.
