Easy task if you have a lift. Not so easy on your back but I have done 
it a few times.
A speedee seal is recommended since there may be a grove on the pinion.
All you have to do is remove the 4 bolts to the drive shaft, remove the 
pin and then the large bolt holding the pinion. You may need a air 
wrench. The pinion should just slide out. Removing the old seal can be a 
pain. I tried using a removal wrench from HF but it broke. Ended up 
using hammer and a thin screw driver.

I believe the speedee seal has to be pressed on. If you dont have a 
press, a machine shop should be able to do it in about 5 minutes.

Have fun!
