Rear Pinion Seal

How hard is it to change the rear pinion seal? i have a Haynes manual and it seems that some sort of special tools are needed. If anyone has done this before, what is required? Is this a do-it-yourself job, or better off taking it to a mechanic. Seems I had the front one done on my 99 wrangler for like $90 once, and that was at the dealer...

It's not a hard job, but you are going to want to have air with an impact gun for removing and then re-installing the pinion nut. Other than that all you need is a small pry bar to remove the old seal. I suggest for installing the new seal that you take a piece of wood and drill a hole big enough to slide over the pinion. Then hammer it on so that you know it's in there straight.

Not a bad idea. You don't want to over crush the crush sleeve.
