I rotated the shaft to push the housing up put of the gear box in turn loosing some of the recirculating balls off the end of the shaft and out of the traveling nut. Found two great posts on the Jeep Forum on disassembly and assembly of the box. NAPA has a complete seal kit for these boxes, part number 7-380.
