Definitely do them. I did both mine a couple years ago and packed them until they oozed grease out the seams. The only thing I noticed was a little grease on the wheels for a short while.......Do it!

Thanks! That is what I wanted to hear. I made up the grease fitting and small tube to fit inot the abs hole. Time to buy some grease and get filling.

Popped in and saw this question. If you don't have ESOF, I see no problem with doing it and would encourage it. However, because vacuum must flow through the bearing to the hub lock, I would NOT recommend it if you have ESOF. Also, as I stated, I'm quite sure the grease got sucked into the small plastic vacuum line running across the frame.

That's not true, the air goes around the bearing.

Awww Pooh is starting off with a positive reputation.
I just bought an 05 Excursion in Colorado, and I had it inspected at the dealer in town and it came back that it needed the inner seals. This isn't exactly the truck to be on a budget with, but I can't pay the dealer a grand to do it for me. I've haven't done anything on this level before, but consider myself fairly competent in pretty much everything, except drywall.

Other than needing the puller, and the tool to set the seals to the correct depth of the seals what else should I need? A lift I don't have, so it will be done on the floor in my garage.

I don't think you will need a puller, maybe someone will chime in on this

I do have ESOF but have seen numerous posts of guys packing grease into these types of hubs.

The grease in the air syndrome is not true.
