    I used a long metal rod and ground the tip of the rod to have a grove and point so it would catch the seal and then just took a hammer and pound them out. Worked well!!
    Good Luck

    I hope you mean the whole carrier is out. You can take a jack handle, a piece of pvc pipe, anything that is at least an inch round and will fit down the axle tube, then just knock them out. Putting them back in is it FUN part. Now that is a BITCH.

    Take a piece of pvc pipe that just lets the seal part fit inside it, a short piece about 3" or so and use it as kind of a punch and hammer the new seals back in. Take your time as they seldom start straight the first time and you dont have much room to work with.
