Ok, thanks again guys. I will get started on this tuesday morning.
12 point socket will work fine. And yes that is the seal. The only reason I suggest you pull the front cover is, If the diff is full of oil and you pull the axle out, the 90wt will run into the tube. After you install everything you will see some oil leakage from the axle tube till it's all gone.
You don't have to,It just make's it a little cleaner when your all done.
