    Hey guys, asking for advice because you guys always point me in the right direction.

    Here's what's going on, the new 2005 wrangler I just got was in an accident cause some lady was dinking around on her phone and ran a stop sign and I've had nothing but issues since then. Her insurance only covered so much and rear axle on the opposite side of where the point of impact was is not going to be covered so I need to fix this issue myself.

    Took it to get looked at and as they had it on a hoist the wheel was pretty wobbley and the tech said the rear axle and seal needed to be replaced. Parts and labor adding up to about $1,021..

    Looking at parts online it's going to be WAY cheaper to do it myself, just needed to get some good advice from you guys on how to go about doing this the correct way. Usually I'll youtube videos to get an idea, but they're all for JK's and I'm not sure if it's similar or not.

    If any of you have PDF files for this chapter that would be awesome!! Still trying to find be a legit copy and service manual for this jeep!

    It all started with a sound and this is not what I expected it to be

    It shouldn't be much different from a 2005 and up
