I assume you are talking about the axle seal...I used a socket, put the socket up against the seal (so that it would be pushed into the axle tube uniformly) and then used a long bar stuck in the end of the axle tube. I hit the end of the long bar with a hammer, which applied force to the socket, which pushed the axle seal into position properly. No special tools at all...but it helps to have two sets of hands so someone can peek through the vacuum motor hole and watch as you drive it in.
