Default D30 axle seal removal

Any tricks to removing these seals? I already have the carrier out but the seals JCR gave me seem different than the seals that are in there. I dunno, never done front seals before.

If you are taking the old ones out just pry on them with a big ass flathead or prybar. Thats all I've ever done if I'm gonna put new ones in. Who cares how they come out as long as you don't screw up the new ones when you put them in.

1 1/2" conduit slid down the tube works great to shove 'em out

Thanks. I ended up getting them out yesterday. I used my seal remover and pried them out. Then I put all my extensions together and a large 1 5/16 socket I believe and pounded the new ones in.

since the axles are out you can do that or your can do what I did I used my jack handle it has a rubber tipped end. Just slide it in from the outside in towards the carrier and pop them out
