My recommendation ... take it to a specialist. Technically, you suppose to "replace" the crush washer anytime you release the pinion preload.
I did mine myself ... even did it the "best" way which is to use an inch-lb torque wrench to set the rotational torque back. 9000 mile later I had to replace the pinion bearings cause I got it a tad too tight. This was much more expensive than if I would've just taken it somewhere and had someone replace the seal in the first place.
Just saying what can happen if you don't get the preload back perfect.
