Rear main seal

Does have a link for a good rear main seal replacement or just any general pointers on doing this? I'm dedicating tomorrow for rear main and oil pan gasket replacement.

I'll be doing this soon as well. It's quite a bit easier than I thought it'd be. As far as online writeups go here's a couple

The above write ups are very informal. I wish I had seen the first one when I did my seal. Here is the link I used when I changed mine out. Just ignore the exhaust Y-pipe.

I'll take some notes and do a write up on the whole process.
