Hi, I did this on my 3400 a little while ago. Craig gave you a good description. Once you have the axle out you will see that the outer seal can only be accessed by removing the bearing which means removing either a collar or a nut. As I recall, if you have the locking differential then you have a collar retaining the bearing. Non-locking differential means you have the nut. I had the nut. I removed the nut using a hammer and a cold chisel to turn the nut. This worked fine. I took the axles to a local shop and the guy pressed the axles out of the bearings. He said I probably could have just stood the axle up on the end that inserts into the differential and tapped it on the floor, and the bearings may have just come loose that way. After pulling the old seals and reinstalling new seals, I was able to replace the bearing and press it back in place simply by threading the nut back on. It's a big nut and I was beating it up too much with the hammer and chisel method, so I bought a wheel bearing nut from amazon for ten bucks and modified it to fit, then turned it with a pipe wrench. Oh, I also used my wood lathe to make a seal driver from a piece of firewood. Worked slick. If you have the collar, the manual has a procedure for drilling the collar then cracking it with a chisel to remove it. As Craig said, the new collar is heated to expand it and then installed. Post back with any questions, would love to help.
