Front Axle Seal Leak

My rubber dust seal came off a few days ago, and now I notice a small leak. Do I need to just replace the front axle seals(to the new metal ones), or is there another seal leaking? Also, does anybody have the part number(s)?Front Axle Seal Leak-imageuploadedbyautoguide1370991021.890939.jpgFront Axle Seal Leak-imageuploadedbyautoguide1370991030.185532.jpg

Is the inner seal only accessible from the differential cover? Any idea where I can find a write up on this?

I'm in the exact same boat right now on my 05'. Driver side is leaking gear oil. I'm going to replace both inner seals and both outer seals as well as knuckle seals, ball joints and u joints too.

I was planning on getting a kit online OEM parts. Include two outer oil seals, two inner oil seals and also the new revised metal dust shields that go in the tube ends. I'm not havin any luck on getting their exact part numbers but the kit states it fits 05 thru 12 trucks. I'm not sure if my ball joints and u joints actually need replacing but she's got 90k so I figure it's getting close.

Gotcha! Ive only got 70k on mine and other than the leak, everything in the front end is tight and not making any noises, so im gonna hold off on the extra stuff for now. Just want to get these seals installed because im leaving for Tennessee on Monday morning.

With the lift and tires, they work out great. Can't go above 80 with it making noise though!

did you ever get the new seals installed? I know sometimes people have a rough time with 4wd front axles depending on age mostly
