Last year when I did the Left Front, I replaced the seal using a large cap from an oxygen tank. It was the perfect size and I simply pounded it on using the cap as a shade tree mechanic driver.

Good info! I went to Lowe's in the plumbing section and got a (white) 3" diameter x about 4" long sewer pipe end and the screw-in cover which has the square end for a wrench in the center. It worked great for pounding. I like the PVC since it is softer than the metal seal. Also used different sizes of PVC pipe for pounding in the races for bearings.
