Yeah its not that bad. Getting out takes a little it is the getting in back in place that takes a little patience. It can be done in a couple hours longer if there is beer involved.

Got to be someone you know that wrenches on something.

If it is a toy then swap in a solid axle. Then you can do away with the vacuum lines and CAD. Solid axles are dirt cheap.

I would stick with just the passenger seal for now. The other one is up against the pumpkin and is a lot more time and work.

You have to pull the carrier for the driver side, not hard, but you need to do your research. The seals are actually a pain to get in. It is a two person job.
