    don't you just have to remove the drive shaft, pull the yoke and it pops right out right?

    Here's a quick explaination of how to do it:

    Drop the driveshaft out of the rear.

    Mark the orientation of the driveshaft to the yoke.

    Mark the yoke's position relative to the rear.

    Remove the pinion nut with an impact gun of socket wrench.

    Slide the yoke out of the rear end. The pinion seal will be directly behind it. With a seal puller or screwdriver (be careful not to scuff up the housing) remove the old seal. Install the new seal with a small hammer or large socket (push it against the seal), tapping it in evenly into place.

    Reinstall the yoke in the same position it was in when you removed it.

    Torque the pinion nut to spec (or about the same torque as it took to remove it, you want the same amount of threads showing on the stud).

    Reinstall the driveshaft.

    Hope that helps.
