The axle seal isn't all that easily replaced, let's hope that cleaning the existing seal and axle tube opening and then applying a thin seal of Permatex Ultra Black RTV around the seal and then reseating everything does the trick. Too much RTV around the seal can encourage leaking so don't over-RTV it.
