    This girl is awesome, she has a bunch of these, does good work and is a lot more palatable than the usual youtube jeep dude.

    Got this done this weekend, the ball joints were a PITA but typical. The axle seals are pretty cool, I'd recommend them so far. You have to take the plastic OEM "seal" off the axle shafts, if it hasn't broken off already, and then I cleaned the shafts and lightly sanded the area where they contact the new seal. Lots of dirt, not much else in the axle. The inner seals were fine.

    I made a big q-tip to clean out the tubes, used a few rags, and then sprayed one with oil and coated the inner tubes. I used a sanding sponge and brake cleaner on the ends where the seals go, lots of silicon and a rubber mallet. easy. The last pic shows how they work, I put the zerk towards the rear. I like them, hoping they're durable.
