Stupid but quick question!

okay i need new wheel bearings in the front on a 97 ZJ... it has the CV shafts and from what i can tell i have expensive hub/bearing units... are there any bearings/seals in the axle tube? i know there are seals in the diff but are there any bearings/seals between the diff housing and the edge of the axle tube?

There is the oil seal down inside the axle tube near the diff. The diff needs to be removed to access those seals, so if itís not leaking, don't worry about the replacement.
There was someone that replaced the seal without removing the diff, but not certain as to where I saw the info.
