Just dropped 4.10's in my 88 YJ and installed all new bearings/seals, ect. After 3 wks, i noticed last night that the front pinion seals leaking again! Any ideas why?? Nuttin jammed in thr from trail, i looked. Yoke was original i believe. Would this be worn enuf to cause it to not seal properly? If i replace the yoke, what do i set torque to on pinion nut???

My front seal leaked everytime after the dealer changed it. I told them 3 times to sand down the yoke as it must have a burr. No go they just changed the seal for a forth time. I fianally got fed up and changed it myself. The yoke looked fine but I could feel a rough spot. I wet sanded it real smooth and no more leak!
It can be a reather expensive seal at least on my 98 Cherokee. The rear is almost half price of the front one.
