Not that hard to do i've broke mine twice hardest part is getting the two 17mm bolts out of the swing arm . There's one on each side behind the round plastic caps the one on the right side has a lock nut on it on mine the lock nut came out with the bolt. I had to use a big cheater pipe to break the bolts loose. Take off shocks ,vent lines,brake adjusters and the rear end is ready to come out. Made sure to check the rear main seal for damage.

Yeah the seals and especially the o rings at brake drums, have rebuilt a bunch of as we say "devastated" rear ends due to that o ring and the shaft seal.
