I just did my seals for the first time a few weeks ago. I recommend a seal driver. I bought the motion pro 41mm driver on Amazon for $50. Its yours for $30 + shipping if interested. 
 

Ensure you have the correct fork seals, new copper washers, fork oil, and dust seals before you tear them down. I had the wrong seals and learned the hard way to compare the new seals to old ones before attempting to install them. 
 

I would also recommend slider bushings if your bike has high mileage. Everything except the oil in my forks had 123k miles on them. Hope that helps.
