The valve stem seals are a much bigger deal to do than the front axel seals. The front axel seals have big bolts with little room for error. The valve stem seals have little parts with a big margin for a catistrophic(sp?) ERROR. Be careful. I have done both jobs myself and went to my 50k plus dollar tool set many many times for special tools...
