New drive

Just realized after a ride to the store a quarter sized oil spill. Sure enough it's from the final drive. Did the wheel shake test and it seems solid. Took wheel off and checked where its leaking from and both sides were dry. The boot however was wet. Looked up the swing arm and the shaft was dry, so it's not the tranny seal.

So I'm thinking its just the front seal of the final drive. Never taken a final drive apart before so I'm not sure what to expect so any suggestions, tips, would be appreciated.

Asked the dealer over the phone and they said $375 and parts...Thinking of tackling the job myself so the kids can have a merrier Christmas.
