QK4811 Inner Axle Seal Kit for GM 10 Bolt Front Axles with installation tools and a pair of seals is the quick and easy way to replace your recessed GM 10 Bolt front inner axle shaft oil seals. Our unique installer design will press in new your Inner Axle Seals without damage because the CNC Precision Machined Installation Tool cups the seal so force is only applied on the steel seal shell.  Axle Shafts worn or rusty? No problem! Our Install Tool allows you to install either or both Inner Axle Seals to a variable depth to miss grooves worn in your inner axle shafts. QK4811 works on all 1977½ - 1991 All K and V Series ½ Ton and ¾ Ton and Full-Size Blazers and Jimmys with GM 10 Bolt Front Axles. Tools Made in the U.S.A., Seals USA or Mexico.

Dan the Gear Man® Tech Notes:
Kit Components
Inspect for Leaks
Must be Removed
Determine Final Depth of Seal

Seal and Tool MUST Match
Removing Old Seals

Tech Note 1: Kit Components
QK4811 Kit includes:
QTA1133 Press Screw Assembly
QT1165 Axle Seal Installer
QT1186 Thrust Plate
(2) QU40055 Inner Axle Seals.
NOTE: QT1165 Inner Axle Seal Installer ONLY works with original equipment QU40055 Seal!

Tech Note 2: Inspect for Leaks
Whenever you remove the front axle shafts, inspect the shafts and axle tubes for any signs of differential fluid leakage. It's a lot cheaper and easier to replace the seals than rebuilding your diff after it blows up due to oil starvation! Differential removal is required. These are tricky seals to install, but you can easily do it with one of these kits!

Tech Note 3: Must be Removed
Your brakes, wheel hubs, axle shafts, and differential must be removed from the housing to replace your QU40055 inner axle shaft seals.

Tech Note 4: Determine Final Depth of Seal
QK4872 uses QT1165 application specific adjustable depth installer which allows you to offset the seal to miss a worn spot on the axle shaft. This is a valuable feature, however, YOU have to determine the final depth of the seal. It is unlikely, but possible to seat the seal too deep with QT1165 installer which can put the seal beyond the machined seal surface of the axle shaft.

Tech Note 5: Seal and Tool MUST Match
Due to the way we have to make the tool to function, your Seal Installer and Seal MUST match. QT1165 Installer will only work with original equipment design, CR manufactured seals such as our QU40055. Seals manufactured by other seal manufacturers WILL NOT WORK WITH THIS INSTALLER!!!!

Tech Note 6: Removing Old Seals
Once the axle is disassembled, the old seals can be easily removed with our QK4647 Seal Remover Tool Set or other suitable tool such as a length of sturdy pipe that will fit inside the axle tube. You will also need to clean the inside of the axle tube to remove dirt and crud that could get pushed into your new seal during reassembly.
