Axle seals and roller bearings need to be removed from the ends of the axletubes for the new kit to be installed. The seal is easily popped out, but the bearing can be a bear. If you don't have an internal three-prong slide hammer, a chisel or punch can be used to remove the inner race and bearings, and then the outer race can be chiseled in half and removed.
