if pinion seal you will not need to go inside but you will need to remove the driveshaft yoke that can be a tough job if you have never done it before.you will need a socket that fits the nut 3/4" socket set is a must a pipe wrench will aid in holding yoke.possibly a new crush sleeve but not usual.I found it easy to do on the ground using the floor to prop the pipe wrench when undoing nut. it will call for torquing to something around 200 lbs a long pipe on handle of socket bar will do with a good pull-push will get you there

Cliff that is the best way, be very gentle going back as if over tightened you can cause some issues with the ring and pinion mesh. Somewhere there is written a procedure to do this correctly. Let us know if you find the procedure.
