Nope, I tapped mine in with a hammer very carefully, very simple.

FYI, the yoke nut is supposed to be one time use only. I added some blue loctite when reinstalling mine.

I'm curious, why do you need to mark the nut where it is tightened to?

Leaking axle seals?

I was under the jeep and took some pictures of my axle seals front and rear (I believe). Are these hard to replace?
