    I assume you are talking about the seal in the side of the front differential, where the CV axle slides in??

    Should just be a regular metal seal with a rubber lip, all you should have to do is pry the old one out and press the new one in with a seal installer/large socket.

    Yep that's what I'm talking about and that's what I thought but just wanted to make sure I wasn't in for any surprises. Thank you
