Rear pinion seal

I have a 05 F350 4x4.... pretty much stock with a leaking rear pinion seal. The question is... Is there any reason a DIY cannot/should not change the rear pinion seal? I have the tools to get it all a part,replace the seal, but am I missing something going back together?

Thanks for any input

No, there isn't any reason you couldn't do it yourself although I haven't heard of many leaking there.

I just spent the last 2 hours trying to find a rear pinion oil seal for the same vehicle. (2004 F350 stock) How did you determine which rear end your truck has and wher can I find a seal. Seems there are multiple sizes offered.

It should be a Sterling unit. O'Reilly has the seal.

I'm new to diesel trucks. I fix jeeps all day long. I cannot believe how hard it is to find parts for these trucks. If anyone can point us in the right direction it would be appreciated.

I don't like unfinished threads so.....
after 2 days I found the OEM part number E5TW4676BA OR E5TZ4676 A or B SUFFIX, or E8TZ4676B and BA suffix. These numbers cross reference to SKF brand 18024 found on rockauto.
