Rear Diff Fluid inside wheel, seal???

I have a light streaking of what smells like rear diff fluid on inside of pass wheel not even enough to leak down side of tire. Noticed the smell of it first of that hints as to how strong it is and that it's def not brake fluid, can't even smell the good smog fumes lol.

What seal is it I need to replace? Will I have to replace both inner(closest to pinion sys) and outer("hub seal"). I ask because I have never done anything other than fluid change on rear ends.

Don't you have to have a certain socket to get the nut off to pull the outer seal?

all you have to replace is the outer hub seal and yes you do need a special socket because its a ratcheting nut u can use a punch but your better off using the proper tool

You don't know where I might be able to get one of those or the name of the socket itself?

I believe it's called just called a ford rear axle nut socket. both the dana 80 dually and the 10.5 srw use the same socket

It's OTC 6601

there's a special seal installer too but it's probably not entirely necessary to have

The socket is $35 from Napa and $18 from O'Reilly's. I replaced them all at the same time since I didn't want to have to do it again. Get the seals and bearings from Napa and save yourself some money.
