drive the truck get the rear end warm and park it on the side of a hill for about 10 minutes on each side to make sure theyre still leaking.
They are easy remove the wheel remove the caliper, remove the axle and outer wheel bearing remove the hub/rotor assembly flip the rotor facing up hub down, remove the rotor take 2 lady slipper pry bars pop the seal out pull the bearing out clean the bearings in parts washer/brake cleaner, clean the spindles with light sand paper. Dont be surprised if the backing plates get screwed up while removing the rotors. Even when you adjust them down they stick to the rust ridge inside the hat of the rotor. youll need to repack the bearings with grease and use a seal installer. make sure you clean the hubs out throw the inner bearing in first then throw the seal in and put the rotor on the hub make sure it gets installed level and make sure your parts guy gets you the right seal. mine gave me the wrong seal on a few occasions. makes for a very aggrivating morning/afternoon. best to bring the seal you pull to the parts counter to make sure its correct.
