Default front pinion seal

how do you go about changing out a front pinion seal? i understand how to do the rear but the front looks like a little different set up.

Changing the front will be exactly the same as the rear, just a bit smaller. To do it right youll need a new seal and crush sleeve and a good dial torque wrench for setting the preload.
