F150 REAR DIFFERENTIAL SEAL

1993 Ford F-150

Drive Train Axles Bearings problem
1993 Ford F150 V8 Four Wheel Drive Automatic 204000 miles

The Speed sensor died and I replaced it, and at the same time I thought it would be a good idea to change the diff. Fluid also, I serviced the diff with 75-140 full synthetic and after I pulled a trailer I noticed oil leaking from the front of the diff where the drive axle enters, I was told it needs a new seal, can you tell me what tools I will need and is it something that I can do? (I've changed transmissions before)

What you are discribing is the pinion seal. You will need to pull the driveline and then the pinion yoke and replace the seal and put it back together. Torque on the pinion nut is 160 ftlbs.

Thanks 966, I believe I can save some money. It shouldn't be too difficult. Thanks again from a father of 4 small children. (=
gotta save a buck anyway I can.
