    Seal Install tools, Dodge '98 4x4 front axle seals

    I used HDPE plastic, measured the new seal for dimensions. The seals must be pulled into place from the inside, you must completely disassemble the axle to change seals. I will post a drawing of the tools.Seal Install tools, Dodge '98 4x4 front axle seals-image.jpgSeal Install tools, Dodge '98 4x4 front axle seals-image.jpgSeal Install tools, Dodge '98 4x4 front axle seals-image.jpgSeal Install tools, Dodge '98 4x4 front axle seals-image.jpg

    Update: The seal change had one hitch. The right side seal is very difficult to get aligned and it take a lot of force to install. So I remade the right side seal tool from steel and this worked perfect. If have to do this job watch "spelunkerd" on you tube, he does a very good job video. If you need a drawing of the seal tool let me know I can email.Seal Install tools, Dodge '98 4x4 front axle seals-image.jpgSeal Install tools, Dodge '98 4x4 front axle seals-image.jpgSeal Install tools, Dodge '98 4x4 front axle seals-image.jpg
