    Hi All,

    I'm getting ready to replace the timing belt on my 2005 V-8,:fingerscrossed:.

    I know some folks replace the cam seals at the same time.

    My question is how much more work is it to replace the cam seals?

    Is it really a good idea/needed to do the cam seals? (They are not currently leaking)

    Where did you purchase the seals? (I got the timing belt (Aisin) kit from Amazon).

    Any tips, tricks or advice on doing the seals?

    Thanks for any help you can offer.

    If it ain’t broke don’t fix it. You can always come back and do the gaskets later. Focus on your water pump while doing your belt. Youtube is your friend.

    I believe changing them requires removing the cam shafts. So it's quite a bit more involved if they aren't leaking.
