Replacing trans output shaft seal & diff seal as well

My Zf is leaking from the output shaft as well as my differential output shaft seal, I picked up both seals today. Whats they procedure for replacing both of these. I know i gotta pull the driveshaft, and then i'm thinking that the seals somehow slip out with some encouragement?? This is for a 2001 f350 extended cab dually long bed. Will i lose a lot of fluid out of each when doing the job?
I'm a student and live in an apartment complex but i have a good set of tools so i figure i can get it done in a few hours.

Thanks,

Wink

The hard part is the getting the yoke off of the pinion . The bolt is tightened to 470ft lbs . Then the yoke is pressed on . It's no fun at all .

Is it really that difficult? I have never removed a driveshaft, i thought that you just had to remove the 4 u joint bolts and give the driveshaft a tap with the hammer and it will come off the tailshaft of the transmission. I need some advice ASAP going to try and tackle this this afternoon.

Pulling the drive shaft is easy . It's replacing the pinion seal that is tough .
