my rear end is leaking oil on my 88 chevy , can you replace the pinion seal without
taking the rear cover off? please keep it clean.

all the ones i ever worked on all you do is drop the drive shaft , pull the yoke and replace the seal, never had to go inside the rear end at all.

Take the yoke with you when you go to buy the seal incast there are two sizes. There was for my 77. And don't tighten up the nut too much. Try to mark where it was and how many turns to get it off.Then you can put it back where it was. There is a spacer sleeve between the pinion bearings that can be squeezed too much and make the bearings too tight if you aren't carefull and you can't do a rolling torque with the diff together.
