QU40382 Dana 70 Inner Axle Shaft Oil Seal is a genuine original equipment combination oil seal and axle shaft guide for Dana 70 closed knuckle front drive axles in Dodge and International 4x4 trucks. This one piece seal replaces both the early production two piece Seal with separate guide and later production unitized seals which are identical to this one. Imported.
Your brakes, wheel hubs, spindles, axle shafts, and differential must be removed from the housing to replace your QU40382 inner axle shaft seals. Use TS4862 Tool Set to remove the old seals.
Having the right tools makes all the difference in doing the job right the first time. Quickly, easily, and correctly install these seals with QT1138 Installer Tool.
Inner Axle Shaft Seals will fail from improper installation, wear, plugged axle vents, and the rubber lip cracking from plain old age. On a lot of older trucks, just removing and reinstalling an axle shaft will take the seal out because the seal lips have hardened with age.
After the seals are installed, be sure to grease the lips to provide initial lubrication for the seal lip. Neglecting this step will usually cause the seal to fail the first time you use 4x4 mode. Do NOT grease the axle shafts as the grease will pick up crud as they are slid into the axle housing.
