    Default Leaky pinion seal

    So, while tracking down other issues on the drive back today, I noticed my front d44 pinion seal is leaking.
    I've seen a few write ups out there, but most are for the d30 (which appears to be a little different).
    Does anyone know of a decent writeup for a rubi's d44? Is it as simple as pulling the shaft, removing the nut, pulling the old seal and then reversing the procedure? Also, what size is the pinion nut?

    Anyone?

    Another question regarding the pinion...
    While I was under the jeep today I noticed my front drive shaft will turn about a quarter of an inch (maybe a little less), while the jeep is on the ground, in park and 2wd. Is this normal?

    The play is normal, well atleast its normal on mine. I think the pinion nut is like a 22mm, i cant recall exactly though.
