Not hard to do. You need to remove the drive shaft, to get to the nut that holds the rear yoke from the differential. Once the rear yoke has been removed, you can replace the O ring seal from the differential by using a screw driver to pry out the old seal. Try not to damage it to much so you can use it to help tap in the new seal. Once the seal is out place the new seal in place by hand and then place the old old seal on it and tap in the new seal with a small hammer. Take care to ensure that the new seal goes in straight and place some grease on the seal before you place the yoke back in to place. Tighten up the yoke nut and you may want to replace the U joint at this time too since it's off the truck. Once everything it back together, check the differential oil level and top off. Good luck and hope this helps, you can get the parts at Auto Zone and they can also give you the step by step instructions to getting the job done with common tools. The hardest part that i can see you having is the removal of the yoke nut, the job takes about an hour to do so if your going to have a garage to the job the most would be 1.5 hours but should take them about 30 min to do.

I'm sorry to say no. If the seals are leaking, there is no other way to stop them from leaking unless you replace them. Unfortunately, this is a big job and requires a lot of disassembly, not to mention labor costs. If your thinking about adding the seal fix additives sold in the auto stores, forget it. They do more harm than good.
