Horsey Boy cant help. Basically if you look underneath you will see the swivel balls have oil dripping down. It has been doing it for a long time as I never put grease in. Just wondering if I am doing brakes if I should bother.

do these vehicles see much off road or high water?

if not, I would say skip the reseal. check the swivel pin for lateral movement (should not be any) and drain/refill with proper swivel grease.

If I recall, doing all four seals, bearings, 2 new hubs, 4 rotors, all pads, 1 new CV was a little over $1200 in parts, compared to over $2,000 for someone to do it. Still spent $2,000 doing it myself, but now I have an add'l $800 worth of tools and more confidence.

PS: of course D90 source guys were a BIG help!

If you drain and fill with grease and top up as needed it will be fine for the next 10 years.
