I have a 1980 Firebird (Esprit).

I am not sure what rear-end it has.

I do not see any tags or numbers.

I need to replace both rear wheel bearing and axle seals.

Short of tearing the car apart and looking for numbers, are these bearings and seal pretty much all standard sizes?

I am not sure if these images will help.

I do not have any specific photos right now of the rear end. But I could get them when I get home.

There is no nut holding the hub on.

It does move back a forth a little.

Is the only thing holding it in there the clip inside the pumpkin?

The seal is definitely shot.

A little puddle of oil on the floor.
