I would do just both seals and inspect axle shafts for grooves where the seals ride on it. Yeah might even want to pull shafts before to inspect the shafts. Then consider a repair or chromolies.Hello guys,
I have an '08 JKU with an '07 Rubi D44 up front. The axle is leaking on the passenger side. I am wondering what all I should do while I get into it? All seals, bearings and ball joints? Or just the leaking seal? Money is kind of tight, so I don't want to be frivolous. Just don't want to have to rip it all down again any time soon. My Jeep is an '08 JKU sport with 45k miles and the D44 is an '07 with 78k miles. What is a good resource for step by step directions? Chiltons or Hanes? Or are there any online resources. I have access to a full shop with pullers, hydraulic press etc. I'm sure that I could figure my way through it, but thought that with some direction, it may help with torque specs, etc. and to help make sure that I don't miss any steps. I tried a search of the forum but didn't come up with anything.
I would recommend RCV's but money is tight.
