Pinion Seal Leak Fix
Next time I get the wild hair to change the pinion seal someone needs to just kick my a$$. This is not a job that takes a couple of hours laying on your back under a car on jack stands. The six bolts that held the driveshaft must have been red locktited from the factory in addition to the pinion nut. They were a ***** to break loose even with a breaker bar. Thank good I had a good set of metric 6pt sockets.
My 2007 GT has around 12k miles on it. There was no reason it should have started leaking. Apparently this is an issue with a lot of Mustangs as the 06 we had leaked also. I ordered a new seal from rockauto, went with a Timpken 3604. Since I did not want to do this again anytime soon, I also ordered and installed a Timken KWK99181 redi sleeve.
