Icon5 Front axle seals

Hello all. I haven't posted in forever so I figured I'd say what's good to start. Anyway I am doing a live axle conversion as my old avm's have decided to give out on me. I'll post pics after I'm done everything since everyone loves those. I have attempted to replace the axle shaft seals on the Dana 35 it is I believe. I am using Timken after market seals I figured they might be a good replacement since I am putting in Timken bearings after all. I figured as I have the entire front end pulled apart to why not simply just get it done rather then having them leak a bit later on down the road as they are going to be turning all the time rather then only when having the hubs locked as I never really did. Just simply don't off-road as much as I used to. For the life of me I cannot get the passenger side to seat all the way down. I have read there are special tools and I have haven't been able to find any specifics hints or the such on how to replace them. I suppose it's straight forward but if anyone has any special hints or tricks that they have used in getting this PITA job finished a bit easier I would love to hear them. Pic's coming soon.
