XJ trans leak

Hi everyone, Im new to this forum as i have only recently purchased my first jeep. Its a 96 jeep Cherokee classic, don't know the full details yet but the suspension has definitely been played with as its lifted pretty well and it has bighorns. First i want to say i cant believe how good these things are off road, i f'n love it already.

Now, i have a bad trans leak. it doesn't leak when not running and not really at start up but gets worse to the point where when i stop and look under its a constant drip. took her for a good play the other day and used it took a litre to top back up.

Reading a few threads i thought it was the torque converter seal, but also the front pump seal sounds more like it (people saying it gets worse as warms up etc) so i want to fix this next days off and hoping for some help.

i got the converter seal side of it sorted through this site, but what am i looking for with the front pump seal. and should i do both at the same time to be sure?

any help be much appreciated cheers
