Hopefully an easy question. Came out last week to find a puddle of gear oil under my '97. Peeked underneath and sure enough there was a trail of oil running down the inside of my passenger front tire. Looks like the axle seal gave up the ghost. I've ordered the full rebuild kit from Nitro, but I'd really prefer to do this job at work where I have access to lifts, tools and a parts washer. Problem is that's 40 miles away on the freeway. Since I'm going to do a full rebuild anyway, how much do I need to worry? What's the consensus?
