1999.5 Axle leaking.
I had a drivers side inner axle seal leak about 1.5 years ago and I went ahead and had the mechanic change out both sides.
Shortly after getting it fixed I walked outside one day and the passenger side was leaking, I was furious!
I had to go away on duty and had no time to deal with the problem.
When I had gotten back home the leak had stopped, I don't know what the deal was but it just didnt leak anymore. Maybe the seal didn't set right at first.
I called the mechanic and said that before I left the passenger side was leaking and he told me that my axle shafts were pretty nasty but he sanded them a bit and said they seemed to seal fine ( they didnt, but then again they finally did.)
I noticed yesterday that there was that darn puddle under my right front tire.
Sooo, I am now here looking for answers on how to fix it. I have gotten more hands on with my truck trying to cash $$$.
I have a 1999 7.3 made in 5/99 ( so its LATE )
I assume its a Dana 50
should I pull the shafts and see or ????
I will need lots of insight on this one please.
