You must completely strip the front end pull the axles, diff gear assembly, then pop the seals out from inside the diff housing. I used a special press to install my new seals.

If the seals have already fallen-out of the axle housing you might as well take a pair of side cutters and remove them so they are not flopping around as you drive. That's what I did about 6 months ago on my 06. Someday when the front end needs work I will install the newer updated seals that don't fall out on their own

The outer seals are more like dust covers. Nothing to worry about. As mentioned above, the real seal is at the differential.

yes your inner oil seal is leaking

the new dust seal relocates from the axle shaft to the axle tube ,, and can actually mask an inner oil seal leak ,,
