rear seal need help

ok guys my truck is leaking fluid from the pass side rear seal. so i took off the tire pulled the axle and everything but i cant find the tool to get the nut off. ive tried all of them at orileys but they dont fit. does anyone know where i can get one?? I have put it all back together for now but its leaking pretty bad and i have a road trip end of next week. so it needs fixed fast. also when i took it apart it looks like its coming from the inside of the hub. (closest to the driveshaft) so which seal would this be to leak? and how hard is it once i get the nut off?

the one i had prob would have fit if i would have sanded it down. i think the paint made it to big to fit in the axle shaft hole. also do you guys think its the seal thats leaking since its coming from the back side? also how hard is it to do once i get the nut off?

its not hard, yes thats where the axle would leak from. I would do both sides. If I remember correctly when tightening the ratcheting nut back down its 65 foot pounds then back off 6 clicks.

well as much as I hate paying someone to do this I'm going to just take it in in the morning. Its going to be cold again. Can't fit in the garage. And I have to get it done ASAP.

Try Mac, Matco, etc big tool companies if you decide not to take it in. Back in the day we used a chisel to tap them off... before we knew better... or cared, one or the other! lol
