Freeze plug replacement guide?

My '94 Sahara is leaking coolant behind the driver's side wheel. I'm assuming it's a freeze plug. I can't seem to find a guide on how to replace them. Anybody know of one?

Use Permatex for the 'shellac'

Remove intake, remove exhaust manifold. Tap them with hammer and screwdriver or punch till they're sideways in the hole then yank them out with channel locks. Replace with OEM plugs from dealership. Aftermarket plugs are way loose and I've had em blow out. Re-assemble. First time takes 4-6 hours, can do it in 2-3 now.
