Vibration 84 Ford wagon

Thanks for all the help from previous questions. I have a nagging vibration above 60 mph. I have found a leaking rear end seal, drivers side, which wasn't brake fluid. Up on jacks I rotated the tires and found a slight grinding noise and wobble on this side of the rear end. Could this be the vibration and if so how much would this cost to fix? I'm just a novice mechanic and would have to let a shop do the work. Thanks in advance

Sounds like you have a bad axle bearing. Good idea on taking it to a shop if you have never changed on before. JMO cause it can be a dangerous task. JMO I wouldn't keep driving it you can lose that axle wheel and all on that side when it completely goes out. IMHO

Another combination of one bad part leading to another.
Bad wheel seal leaks diff. fluid, fluid level goes down, bearing doesn't get lubricated anymore.

Your best bet is to get both seals and wheel bearings replaced at the same time. Not much additional cost but if one goes bad, the other is not far behind.
For example, you wouldn't change just 1 wheel's brake pads and not the other.
