Directions on how to replace ball joints and axle seals on my Dana 60?

I recently stuck a Dana 60 under my truck and it's loose as a goose.

I've never rebuilt a front suspension (balljoints, axle seals, and all those brackets) but I figure it can't be too hard.

Does anyone know where I can find some directions to install this crap or do I just yank it apart as it comes?

Thanks.

Here is a link to a ball joint write up.

Those directions by Jinco are the ones I used... They are very complete. The axle seal tool he made works great too. I had to have a guy at work machine a floor flange to the right diameter to make the axle seal tool though. Otherwise, the only thing you may need are air tools to get the knuckle off. If you are halfway through the project and have problems, ask here before you break any tools because there are a lot of guys on here that have come across a lot different and unique issues doing ball joints. Good luck!
