I replaced ALL the seals on ALL the boxes last fall.
Thats the very large, odd seal if I remember
correctly. On my rear diff. the front seal leaked. I
thought it was "bad" but based on the amount of fluid
still in the case it looked worse than it was. I
dropped all the boxes and cleaned and replaced
everything "soft". I wish in hindsight that I had
replaced the bearing directly behind the front seal.
I checked it carefully and had some suspicions that I
should have replaced it. I think it takes most of the
abuse in this box. All went well with the install.
Just needed to find a correct sized driver. Good
