If its just the pinion seals, you can pull off the yoke and remove the old seals with a screwdriver or a puller. Clean the inner lip and tap the new ones in gently. As for fluid, go with the factory recomended weight and get good old dino. Synth has some good bennefits but for some reason doesnt transfer heat as well. Good old dino will be fine in a diff application. (75-140 if I remeber correctly).

I have never needed a puller for them. Pull the pinion nut and washer and give them some good whacks with a hammer on the side. This has always worked for me, but if yours are stuborn a puller may be necassary.
