I just bought my 95 Ram 1500 4x4 & the pass side half shaft or whatever you want to call it is leaking , I know theres a seal in there but how do I change it, Its like a foot inside the housing. Im sure theres some kind of seal puller I have a short one for doing seals on engines & what not but no way will it reach inside the housing. Then how do you put it back in also. Thank you in advance for the help.

Well bottom line is they are a bitch to change. not because anything is really hard, but because you have to do so much work just to get to it.

You will have to:
take off tire/wheel
caliper
rotor
wheel bearing
drain gear oil
pull axle shaft
pull CAD unit

Then you can use a long peice of all thread or a bunch of extensions together to pop out the old seal (it needs to be pushed into the CAD housing from the passenger side knuckle).

To get the new one in I got creative with all thread and a socket the same diameter as the seal, but so some reading on what others have done.

It's not hard, but very time consuming.
