If you follow David's instructions above you will have no problems. I did it and I could screw up a one car funeral. The only thing I did different was to coat the inside of the tube with a rust inhibitor.

Re: Rear end re-seal

I just reread this post and I have two more tip to install the axles seals. Instead of trimming the rubber off the outside of the seal I made a ring compressor ( like a piston ring compressor) out of .010 shim stock and a hose clamp. Installed the seal in the tube and taped it with a block of wood. They slid right in. Gary Jones gave me a tip. He said to pack grease inside the seals. He said this will help reduce heat.

Re: Rear end re-seal

I would pull the chunk and see what you have in there before ordering anything. You may have the newer style "Seals It" seals.

Re: Rear end re-seal

Devin, this would be a good time to swap in some 3.90 gears ;-)

That's a good idea.... Ill start shopping this AM.

Whilst we are on this topic - I've been reviewing several gear oils and weights. The redLine shockproof looks like the ticket, however, I'm not entirely sure if it's too much and should stick with the 75w90..

thoughts, comments, laughter, etc....

How did the new seals work? I'm looking at purchasing a used 2006 GTS and there's small leaks on each end of the diff tubes and going on to the rear rotors. Owner's mechanic says this is normal??? Thanks

Re: Rear end re-seal

Not only is it not normal, it's not safe.
The actual tube seals are easy to remove and install. Call Panoz, they can save you a lot of time by supplying the correct seals and giving guidance.

Re: Rear end re-seal

Thanks for the quick reply. According to Panoz tech folks the diff tubes are supposed to be dry.
