Default Seal

Hi all, I have a 2002 Dodge Sport 1500 and the front seal is leaking on the rear end. Big job, small job? Should i put a new bearing in?

Thanks Ted

Remove pinion nut. Remove seal. Install new seal. Torque pinion nut as per FSM. If you need to put a new bearing in (can't hurt, but do you need it?) then it becomes a bigger job.
