rear axle issue
i got an 04 wrangler tj, there is grease leakin from the axle into the drum brake housing, which in turn is throwing it everywhere in the wheel weld. i pulled my tire/wheel off and the cover of the drum brake, and its def comin from the axle. i need to dissassemble the pads and springs, unblot the 4 nuts on the bolts holdin the axle, and it will slide right out correct? then i just need to replace the seal, re lube the axle shaft and put it back together? :banghead:

for the most part correct, I think you may need a press to get the new seal on the shaft though.
