Id say its as easy as replacing your pinion seal but I have a feeling thats going to be a quite the task in this situation.

I think you need to diagnose the problem. When i changed my gears my pinion was leaking bad. It was from my carrier bearings were shot and had sent metal up to the pinion and fubarred the seal. I was about to blow the 10 bolt when i decided to regear, Im glad i did it then.

Hes probley looking up the word enlighten right at this very moment:imo

As for your stupid FF idea I'm not even going to get into everything that wont fit........... hey I have a great idea you can get a FF for the back then just toss your 10 bolt up front thats a serious solid axle swap for cheap!

If you change that pinion seal in under a day without fucking something all up I will be impressed. That will trully "enlighten" me :read:
