I'm going to take a wild guess and say sand ate one of your seals.
Maybe post a picture of where its leaking from.. also how much is it leaking?

Between driveshaft and Tranny? Easy, assuming nothing needs to be dropped out of course. Pics help!

You can try fastpartsnetwork.com

I don't think you can just pop the Diff seal out though. I think the diff needs to be opened, and the gear lash will need to be re-setup since you are taking the nut off of the crush washer.

Good luck with it.

if you're havin the gears done in the rear, just wait for that to fix that seal. the tranny output seal is available at any parts store, if they dont have it listed for your year, check from a '90-up, they are all the same seal. all you have to do for that one is pull the driveshaft, pry the seal out, add a tad of grease to the new seal and tap it into place fully, then slide the shaft back in.

ummm, it doesnt really matter where you buy it, but buying actual timken parts is not wasteing money, and timken is what autozone happens to sell for the rangers.
