I need to replace my right side front axle seal where it goes into the differential.
I'm sure I can figure it out but does anyone have the procedure for replacing the seal?

I was lucky enough to have mine replaced under the Power Train warranty by the dealer.
This is what mine looked liked:

Mine was leaking more than the picture shows. I wiped it off so that it didn't drip in my driveway.

This is on a 2017 Z71. 2 inch level with a diff drop.
How many miles? You might get it done under warranty. Don't be surprised if they say no because of the lift.
What you have to do is remove the axle to replace the seal.
If you have to do it yourself look for a YouTube video on it.

35000 Miles. I'm going to fix it myself. I already bought the seal.
I ordered the new Eibach PRO-TRUCK 2.0 Coilovers and I'll be replacing it when I install the shocks.

Seal replaced. No more leak. It wasn't too bad to do.
Don't forget the alignment. (not for the seal but the coilovers) lol
Oh, and make sure the diff is full. (y)

Diff leaked out of fill hole when I took the plug out to check it. It didn't lose much with the small seal leak.
They must be over filled from the factory.
