Unfortunately you will have to remove the axles on that model of truck to access the brakes and it is necessary to replace the seals at this time because you will probably cut the old seals upon removal.I would recommend that if you are going to check them you at least need to clean and de glaze the old shoes if you don't replace them!!!! make sure to use a good quality brake cleaner.

SOURCE: rear axle leaking
Block the front tires. Break the rear lugs loose. Jack up the rear of the truck at the center if possible. remove the wheels & brake drums. Remove the brake shoes,return springs & all the other hardware. Remove the differential cover & drain oil. If you have a posi the next step sucks. You need to remove the threaded pin from the housing & remove the axle retaining clips. All the while,being carefull of the spring in the posi unit. If no posi,then same procedure,minus the "pucker factor". After the axle is out,take a large flat blade screw driver or pry bar & pop the seal out. Keep in mind the axle bearing is probably gone too , so that's another procedure. Keep it apart,you'll be glad you did.

Yes you will need to pull the axle to get that seal out. You will need to pull tire open punkin or gear case there will be a C clip holding the axle inplace pull this out and very carefully slide the axle out the seal is in the axle housing
