8" Ford Rear

I have an 8" Ford rear in my T- Bucket. I have a leaking rear wheel bearing seal. Once I get the axle out where is the seal? I really mean will the bearing have to come off to replace the seal or does the seal stay in the housing? If the bearing needs to come off I figure I may as well remove both axles and get both bearings replaced along with both seals.

the seals are on the outside of the bearings, so you don't need to remove the bearings to replace the seals, but if ones leaking why not do both, because you gotta open the diff anyways, and why not change the bearings while your in there too?

The money you'll save from servicing the diff twice will almost just pay to do it all the first time
