2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion Discussion, Installing new front differential bushing in Cadillac CTS-V Series Forum - 2004 - 2007; thanks ewill3rd,
If I end up changing the seal my self, do I have to rotate the diff or can
You can just drop the propshaft down, I take the exhaust off for room to work.
I don't think there is enough room to do it with the exhaust on.
The diff can sit right where it is you just have to get to it.
I'd recommend having this done, there are a couple of special tools you'd need. It can be done without them but it is a more reliable repair if done properly with the tools. Of course I'd be lying if I said everyone who does it uses the tools. The most important one to me is the seal installer. The rest you can use generic substitutes for.
I don't think you can even get the original design seal anymore.
They updated parts inventory to make sure you get the new seal and the yoke, the old style is not compatible with the new seal, it has to be installed as a kit.
Re-opening an oldie! What is the tool used for the bushing removal/install? I have access to a "pitman arm puller" which may or may not work - anyone familiar with both? Also is there a step-by-step for this(preferably with pics so an idiot like me can change out for the Revshift front diff bushing)?
Any help would be bueno!
