    -- Remove the driveshaft yoke from the diff.

    -- Remove the old seal using a hiik/pick kit or whatever works best for you.

    -- Carefully get the new seal started, then using a socket (or something similar) of the same O.D. of the seal tap the seal into place.

    -- Replace the yoke and your done!

    the pinion is allready set, so put shims in instead of a new crush sleeve. Just measure the thickness of the sleeve and get some spacers at the parts store. Don't over torque the pinion nut.

    Put something like assembly goo on the spring so it doesnt come off when installing it.

    What about it? /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif Its already crushed, just put locktite on the nut.

    I suppose you shoud torque it down, but I just do it by feel. Dont make it too tight as you will kill the bearings, and dont make it too loos as you will kill the ring and pinion.
