The seals are easy. You have to pull the rear end cover and pull the center pin. Once the pin is removed you just push the axle in and remoce the c clip, then the axle pulls out. The seal is right on the end of the rear end housing and will come right out. To do the bearings you will need a press, they are pressed on the axle shaft. Most auto parts stores can press them off for you.

John. Seriously? The seal is harder than the bearing!
