pull the shafts out from the axle tube ends, pull the carrier gear, knock out the old seals, put the new ones in, put the carrier back in, shafts back in. wheels back on. done.... obviously not as easy as it sounds. if you have any problem it will come with the gears.

come with the gears? I'm not going to switch out the gears just replace the axle tube seals. 1 is already knocked out the of the tube thats the reason for replacement.

Those outter tube seals are like 6 of one half dozen of the other. They are designed to not let any dirt, water, etc... in your axle tubes, however that also means that whatever does get in there won't be able to get out either.

I personally think they are just a gimmick product that really provide no value. I'd say just to replace your inner tube seals and call it a day.
