I don’t think the pinion seal is all that tricky either.
It's actually much more complicated TO DO CORRECTLY than most people realize...

The pinion bearing preload is critical, and it takes an inch-pound torque wrench (which is a rare beast) to measure or set it.  Before removing the pinion nut, the preload should be measured (which is a process in itself) so that the nut can be re-installed to the same setting later.  This is NOT the torque on the nut (which is over 200 lb-ft).  Yes, many people skip all that & just tighten the hell out of it.  And some of them even get substantial life out of the axle afterward.  But it's not likely.

Thanks Steve, I did see a video about this on YouTube.. about 5 mins in he talks about the crush sleeve and at 6:20 in the guy describes what he does. I think this is the way I will tackle it.. as this is a low milage vehicle I hope it is enough!

Gary.
I have more tethering allotment so I went back and filled in the blanks.
I tried to use known vendors (Amazon, Summit) so the links should last.
Not the cheapest, like eBay.
