I replaced my front Pinion seal and man was it a biotch. I knew the pinion nut was going to be hard. I consider myself pretty strong (benching about 260-275) and i had a 3.5ft breaker bar. I could not take the nut off it was not budging at all. I even had the wheels on the ground so the axle wouldn't spin. I thought my eyeballs were going to pop out. I lucked out, we had some contractors working on our bathroom and he noticed the problems i was having. He busted out a compressor with a impact gun. It was rated for 265lbs. it eventually got the nut loose, it must have been put on hella tight at the factory. I yanked out the old seal and put in the new one. Replaced the yoke and ujoint straps. Then i cleaned out the diff and used my new Lube Locker, we'll see how well it works compared to RTV. So far nothing is leaking.
I need to do the rear, but i need to look into getting my own compressor and impact wrench or renting one. I hope that the rear doesnt give me near as much trouble.

Tried to install an OME HD 2.5, ran out of time cause the front shocks gave me some trouble, could not get the top bolts out. Using another persons garage so I had to put the old crap back on until I can find more time and get a break from work.
