I don't see why not
I wasn't screwed, and you made it sound like I had a incompetent mechanic because of the price of a repair. Maybe some people aren't out too stick it too everyone. Sorry for the attitude defending a mechanic's shop.If the differential cover wasn't removed during your $90 repair, then yes, I am saying it was not fixed PROPERLY! Will it hold? Time will tell.
Since YOU brought it up... I am an ASE master tech in diesel and heavy truck.
Just because u were screwed, doesn't mean u should give attitude to someone who is explaining the proper procedure.
Well I'm going too stop debating this because the truck that was repaired and the seal working fine was totaled by some lady that blew a red light.the seal is not what is suspect on a $90 repair, the ring and pinion are at risk due to a loose pinion or the bearings get burned if it is overly tight.
if you knew what was being done you would know that a proper repair cannot be done at $90,
a quick stuff in a seal and hope it takes a while to develop an issue is what you can get for that price
the mechanic knows that most people wont want to pay for a proper job so he is doing the quicky
