thanks and words of encouragement/ Rear axle advice
first of all thanks to all you cats that respond to my threads. You have helped me steer clear of some mistakes I could have easily made otherwise. Second to all you newbies out there. Get the manuals. Buy the tools and take the time to learn how to fix your own stuff. Im thirty eight and never turned a wrench until I bought my jeep. You save a ton and I get alot of enjoyment out of it. You will too. And lastly. In the next couple weeks when I can afford the parts and the tools Im gonna do the rear axle seals cause the right one has sprung a leak. I might be over ambitious but I want to do the seals the bearings the shoes drums and rebuild the wheel cylinders. Im prolly nuts but I am gonna take two days off from work to do it so I can enjoy myself. Any advice as usual would be appreciated. Happy trails:blunt:

soak every nut bolt washer and well everything! with PB Blaster daily (starting today up until you actually do the work) so that you will have minimum trouble with that.
