1985 Jimmy K15. I need to change the rear axle seals, not sure how.

(1990 GMC Jimmy)
in Youngstown, NY on May 09, 2014
How do I take a part the rear axles just to replace the seals?
By dismantling the wheel, or through the differential? With some detail please.
Thanks in advance!

Sure...limited slip is just a bit tricky for a novice is all. On a std diff one wheel will turn one way while the other turns in the oppostie driection. You should be ok there....if you need help, ask again!
