Hey, I did mine a few months back. Had a inner leak for a while, then the PS wheel bearings went and had diff oil on the rotor.
Pulled like crazy braking.

Not too bad of a job. Got the kit from Cruiser Outfitters, with the Marlin inner seals. I got the timkin wheel bearings from advance local, in stock. BUt I should have just go the full kit from Cruiser outfitters.

I got the 54 mm socket from Northern Tool and a brass punch/drift from Harbor frieght.

I could give you a hand but it would probably be a few weeks out.
Is it undriveable due to the oil on the brakes?
Where are you located?

I would do a search in the 60 section and read all the how-to guides. It made a big difference.
Also get some rubber gloves and lots of paper towels.

DL the FSM if you dont have it. There are pics of the whole breakdown.

Make sure to mark the shims, top/bottom

If you got oil on the pads, you will want to replace them as well.

PB-Blast the nuts/bolts a few days before. But you will still need the brass bar to get them off. CONE WASHERS.

Maybe we can do a Meet in your driveway.
Everyone should have a knuckle rebuild under their belt.

I did a a couple of knuckle rebuild on 80, it should not be that of a difference with the 60, right? When are you guys planning on wrenching these puppies?

The Power Steering Gear Box on the driver side drips down there.
Thats red.
If that is it, try some Lucas stop leak.
