Need help, front axle problem.
 
G’day
I own a 2000 Jeep Wrangler TJ, I found out that there is oil leaking in the front shaft joints and the front axle :confused: as shown below pictures.

bad pinion seal

That's nothing more than a leaky pinion seal that is both inexpensive and relatively easily replaced. If you're not handy with tools, any 4x4 shop or mechanic can easily replace it. It takes about an hour and the part is under $20. If you want to do it yourself, a very durable brand of replacement seal is Chicago Rawhide. :)

Thanks a lot for the quick reply :D that pretty much my thought too, if anyone else have been through this or has any sight of it, it would be also helpful,

Cheers :)

Now is a good time to upgrade that pinion yoke. I like the UBolt style yokes much better. :)
