The axle seal keeps your rear end grease from leaking onto your brakes and wheels, They run about $10 to $12 and the book time is about 1 1/2 hours to replace one side.

I need my rear axle seals & bearings replaced & have been quoted $450 (parts only $15) due to time required to disassemble axle & reassemble. Since I was having both front & rear brakes & rotors replaced at same time (failed inspection) they did a 'temp' fix with sealant, and said to just make sure they check my rear differential fluid at every oil change as there will be minor leaking until replaced
