my 2005 f250 front passenger seal is fubarred. the lip part is stuck to shaft between the ujoint and the housing, the outer part is bouncing around on shaft. how come there isnt oil all over everything? is there a inner seal next to diff? is there a outer bearing there that is running dry or sucking in dirt? axle is straight on this one. thanks fellow ford tecks, bobn

Hi Bob,,,,The seal that is in the knuckle is a dust/vacuum seal,the bearings are sealed.One part of the seal is pressed onto the shaft and the other part is pressed into the knuckle,and the seal spins inside it's self.They are kind of hard to replace and I don't think you have the right "tools" to do the job :D .
