    I tried Napa, Orileys and auto zone. Napa had the best customer service.

    I got the seal set and everything reasslembled. I do have to replace the boots on my break calliper. maybe the guide pins. now I have to fill up the diff to the proper level

    You don't need to release the parking brake if you're just doing the axle seal replacement. See: .
