97 xlt different repairs need to be done

While getting an oil change today the repair people tell me I need a
pinion seal and differential service. Don't know yet how much it will
cost or what that means for that matter. The vehicle has 230k on it.
What do yall think?

Changing the pinion seal shouldn't be a problem, but getting the bearing
preload set correctly might be. You have to loosen the pinion nut and remove
the yoke. When you go back , it must be re-tightened correctly. You might be
able to mark it and probably get it close, but it should really adjusted so
that it takes so many inch/pounds of torque to turn it. I recall seeing
something about 16 inch/pounds, but you'd better check for sure. If you go
to tight and over tighten the crush washer, you'll have to start over with a
new one. Probably better to let someone else do it that has experience. I do
not believe this should be an expensive item to fix.
