Pinion Seal Replacement

  1. So my 05 has 155,000 miles and the pinion seal has started leaking a little. Not bad, but just wondering if I should pull the cover and replace all of the oil in the rear, or just top it off once I am done with the seal. If I change the oil, is there anything or special oil that I should put back in. I can do the work, I just want to get the best bang for my buck.
  2. At 155K if not ever done, I'ld go ahead and change it .....
  3. Definitely drain and replace. Depending on how hard you drive it, I'd consider running a higher end gear oil (I use Royal Purple).
  5. I had a mustang that i never changed the rear end oil, and about 200-225 th miles the pinon bearing went out
