its not hard at all, pop the rotor off, you then pop the axle off by removing the 8 bolts holding it in and pry it out. then you are going to have to rent or but the 4 prong hub nut removal socket. you pop the hub off being careful not to drop the wheel bearing on the ground. Then you take a seal remover or a big screwdriver and pry the old seal off the back of the hub and evenly press the new one in., then you just put it together. Be sure to tighten the hub nut to the factory spec and you may as well replace the oring on the axle shaft while you in there.

What you might try first is clearing your axle tube vent line. What commonly happens is this line gets plugged with sludge or dirt and causes the axle to pressure up and force oil out the seals. Sometimes it's the pinion seal, sometimes the axle seal, or both. You need to pull the rubber tube off the fitting on the axle tube and clean it out with a drill bit and also blow the rubber line out with air. I had a major oil leak on my axle seal recently. I cleared the vent line and the leak stopped. Hope this helps.
