Although I've not tried it, many report gggGary's method of clamping a tire iron into a vice and levering the fork leg against it works well. Whatever prying method you use, be sure to adequately protect the top edge you're prying against on the fork leg. I made up a "special tool" for this. It's nothing more than a small section of aluminum angle with a "finger" cut into it and bent down. It sits perfectly all by itself on top of the lower ..... For prying the seals out, I modified a big old square shank screwdriver by rounding the tip on it ..... The square shank keeps it from rolling while I pry and the rounded tip minimizes the chances of gouging up the seal bore.
