Axle shaft seal?

Im getting 3.73 gears put in, does the axle shaft seal get replaced when doing a ring and pinion swap or do I have to buy those separate?

'94 bird- 20% tint,mark 8 driveshaft,clear corners, aftermarket rear spoiler, jmod, 3.73 gears, gutted interior.

Wouldn't be a bad idea. Check with the shop that's doing it, they might tell you it needs them anyway.

It's not a 97 Sport, it just looks like one!

Oreilly lists like 5 different axle seals and napa lists one. Not sure which one is the right one.

There is maybe a different seal for the 7.5 and 8.8 IRS? Not sure the 8.8 IRS is what is used for the V8 and SC models.

Oh okay, in that case RockAuto has Timken ones as well which are probably just as good as the originals if not the same as the original seals.

I've removed axles on my '91 chevy truck and my '92 tbird and every time I didn't replace the axle seals they leaked. that is three times with new seals two without. i'd say do it.

one time was putting a used 3.73 differential in replacement of my 3.08 differential and autozone gave me seals for a smaller differential. I still need to fix this.

the last time was on the chevy and seals were not all that old but they leaked onto my brakes. luckily they are semi-metallic pads and cleaned up good. I think organic would have been ruined.

1992 Tbird LX 5.0, 3.73 gears, 1995 Cobra intake, deleted air silencer, 2.5" mandrel bent dual exhaust, SCP shorty headers. Updated four-hole fuel injectors. SK shift kit in AOD. Vogtland 0.9" springs, Tokico and Bilstein shocks.
