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!

Thank you sir!
on May 09, 2014 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!
