Cost to replace pinion seal?

On a rear differential for a 2001 Ford F150? Called the dealer and douches didn't want to quote me a price.

Any general ideas, with a diff fluid change regardless of whether it's necessary or not.

Around $200 is a fair price if they do a complete job. Around $100 if they just remove the driveshaft.

Or you could do it yourself for $20 + time (obviously, look for how to do it on your specific car if you can)

I think Chilton time is about 1.2 hrs on that. For the DIYer its a pain getting those 12pt 12mm bolts out of the pinion flange, and then getting the preload right afterward. Just a job a wholr lot wasier with an impact.

$200 would not be out of line including gear lube and seal.

Had a buddy at work give me an estimate with a fluid change, tax and all $350-420 depending on cost of materials and whatever labor warranty you want.

Fuck me... I better find a friend who can help me do it, then.

What's involved with doing the following:
  1. Replacing the seal
  2. Readjusting the gear lash (assuming the ring/pinion aren't fucked)
  3. Reassemble?

Is it cheaper to get a nice dana 80 from the scrapyard? I heard those nissan guys replace their axles pretty much all the time. Ebay says the dana 80 costs the same as replacing the seal on your axle. Might be cheaper to consider a direct replacement from the scrapyard.

Mods still get the report even though you get an error message. If I see a report I will do something about it.

Mostly these days it's just people reporting spam bots and requesting things like removal of personal email addresses from old threads.
