    take off the drive shaft unscrew the pinion hold the bearings in place and pry out the seal it comes out pretty easy well it should then put the new seal in andput the pinion and drive shaft back together remember your going to loose some fluid so make sure you get your 80 90 oil

    The "correct" procedure is to change the crush sleeve.

    There is more to it than this but I don't feel like describing how to do it for the 1000th time. If you do it this way I wouldn't expect your diff to last very long. Search and you will find your answer.
