Default Axle Seal Leak HELP!!

Allright so my driver side axle is leaking a good bit. I plan on fixing it myself.. no special tools. Heres the kicker. my truck has the *off road package.. I know that it has slightly different axles.. would this call for a different type of seal/procedure? Any help is appreciated!

Whether you have 4x4 or 2x4 that has a front or rear axle seal that is leaking, when you pull that axle out, pull the seal out and take it with you to the auto parts to match. Saves a trip back if it doesn't fit.

Doh! front haha! And I figured that would be a good plan. This off road package tends to make things slightly more complicated.

Yuck.

You're going to have to get in there to change the seal:




1 - INDICATOR LAMP SWITCH
2 - DISCONNECT HOUSING
3 - VACUUM SHIFT MOTOR
4 - AXLE SHAFT
5 - SEAL
6 - SHIFT COLLAR
7 - SHIFT FORK
8 - BEARING
9 - INTERMEDIATE AXLE SHAFT

My turn...Doh, still learning up and down...or was that right and left. Anyway, I'll just leave this right here.

Allright^ is moving the shift collar/shift fork needed? I am going to follow a procedure similar to this one if it makes any sense... and where would this indicator lamp switch be located?

Disregard my last haha, that diagram did not show.. Allright I went and looked.. the whole assembly should disconnect when I pop those bolts right? (parts 1/2/3) and everything else should slide out simply... I know I will be replacing both seals.. This will be a beeech.

Yeah if it's not broken it should come out as one unit.
