This DIY is straight forward. Anyone with half of mechanical ability can do this.
I changed out the gasket, didn't look too bad but was leaking.
Since the car was already on stands I went ahead and changed out the oil/filter, coolant, steering fluid, and differential fluid.
I had to wait for a buddy to come over with a 14 mm allen socket since I didn't have any on hand so that took an hour away from the car, so while waiting, I changed my son's oil on his car.
I have to say it all went smooth and easy, thanks to the DIY's on here. The only issue I had was getting the banjo bolt to screw back in on the steering column, It was tight and had to be on a slight angle to get it started.

I feel so much better now that this is all out of the way. Next in line is the brake fluid and change out the front rotors and pads.

Driveway really looked red neck yesterday lol.
All took ~5 hours to complete.
