Rear Axle seals

I got a 2004 Wrangler and the rear axle seals are leaking onto the brakes.
I was thinking about doing the job myself, but I can't find instructions for the rear. (found the front)

Any ideas? Is it the same procedure? Do I need to pull the rear apart to get the axles out to replace the seals?

Thanks,
Fred

Fred,

Welcome aboard. The rear seals are actually on the axle shafts themselves. In order to get to them you have to cut the bearings off also and replace them. It's not the easiest thing in the world to do if you don't have a press available to use.
