Deep DOO DOO i think, Front Axle Seal GONE!

Okey I know i have not been around much in the last year. 2 boys and a needie wife lol. Missed the MNG :-( I was Deployed! Heres my problem.

Ball joints are gone in my truck at 60k miles. No biggy went and got all the seals and joints. Removing drivers side axle and when it slides out i notice that the rubber push in seal that goes around the axle shaft in the housing tube is ripped in half and has let alot of dirt and who knows what else in the axle. It goes all the way down the axle to what appears to be the line where the axle meets the bushing or bearing or whatever else is inside. WHERE do i go from here with this? SCUFFY i hope you read this tonite. Im a little worried. Looks like it has been like this for a while.

Hey Stranger,

Well both sides where completely ripped apart. Almost like the center of em just gave out and left a big gap for crap to get into the tubes. Good news is it didnt get past the white cup seals in there.

How you been man.

Glad to hear the seal cups stopped the trash where they did. Hope that it didn't do too much damage to the axles.
