I need a little advice on my 1969 camaro 10 bolt rear end. I am putting it under a 54' BelAir and I currently have it out from under the car while I am putting new brakes on it and painting it. I got it used and the gears look pretty clean when I pull the cover so I plan on leaving those alone. The rear seals look pretty good too, but I am wondering if I should replace them since I have it out from under the car and on the bench. I have never done this and wondering what the skill level is. It looks pretty easy, but like I said I have never pulled axl's out and replaced seals. Should I leave them alone? Or should I go for it. If the advice is go ahead and replace, then any instructions and places that sell the rear seal kit would be much appriciated. Thanks!

Any idea what the torque spec is for that bolt? This sounds pretty easy and the parts are cheap, so I am going to do it.
