    Easy peasy. If you were at Moab this year you could have seen that along with fork seals being done.
    Only trick I can think of is to twist the fork to ease it out of the clamps.

    Changing the boots is not hard, just requires a bit of attention to detail upon reassembly so that fork legs and front axle all re-align without any binding. Look into Similar Thread listings @ lower left edge of this web-page for detailed instructions.
