It's the inner seal and unrelated to the noise unless you managed to not notice for long enough and all the oil has leaked out.

You have to remove the shafts and pull the carrie to replace the seals. Replace both seals and it's also a good time to replace the u joints.

Here's a write up, D-30 Axle Shaft Seal Replacement - 1

The hardest part is getting the carrier out because it's preloaded. Important notes are to make sure the bearing caps go back on exactly how they were and bearing races are on the side they came off of. You should also have torque wrench to tighten down the bearing caps spec.
