    Well just got done. Replaced a rusted driver's side fender liner and while it was off if replaced the seals in the powersteering gear. Boy that's the way to do it on that side. Nothing attached to the fender so it came right out. That left the steering gear wide open and easy to get to. Didn't even remove it. Just disconnected the steering bar. Removed the end and pulled out the shaft. Replaced the seals and put it all back. The worst part was finding a 24" pipe wrench to remove the lock nut. So far no leaks. Hopefully it's done. All I have left to do is put the mudflap back on but I'm going to under coat the fender first.
