basically... I approached the shop... they told me that they take the part that the berring is pressed on to gets pulled out and they ship it out to another shop... then it comes back and shop one reinstalls it on the car... 180 dollars for this...

I supplied them with the seals, and everything. But I'm guessing they bent something because after two tries at this the oil is still seeping out. Runs right down the tire...  So aparently that second shop is run by morons...

If i could get a non leaking sealed up axel shaft... I'd take mine to somewhere else...

P is gonna get tired of filling the rear differential with gear oil....

Guaranteed they didn't protect the inner seal with a rolled up sheet of paper as they slid the axle in.....the axle's splines cut the seal's edge.

The seal is not in the bearing.  It's in the axle housing.
 
Sigh. . .bring it up here for cryin out loud
 
Bob, I never had to do that.  You just have to support the axle as it passes through and it's best to vasoline the botton side of the shaft for the balance of ths slide.
 
That guy you are going too has no clue John

Yes, you have to support the axle as it goes out or in...but those splines are sharp and one false move and the seal is  "splined" too.

You take a sheet of paper (like your printer uses) and roll it up around the axle splined end. Hold onto it after it goes onto the seal and push the axle through the paper-protected seal. Once the splines are safely inside, remove the paper and continue to push the axle into the carrier.
