Re: Rear Axle Seals AMC20
Jeepgod is right, if your bearings are ok, the seal replacement is easy. The only reason you would need a press is to replace the bearings. The bearings are placed on the shaft with an interference fit. When I did my one piece axles, it cost me $12 to press on two bearings and took all of 5 minutes.
The worst part of the job is bleeding your brakes after disconnecting your brake lines to slide out the axles. I use a $20 vacuum pump and do that in about 5 minutes too.
Do it yourself, it's the best way to learn things and gain confidence in reparing your Jeep! Good Luck!
