CJ7 Axle Maintenance

This weekend I am beginning my '79 CJ7 off-frame restoration. I plan to replace all of the u-joints, open up the differentials, go through the brakes, etc.

Is there anything I should do to the axles beyond just replacing the gear oil? Should the axles be checked out? Are there any seals I should replace?

I do not know what the Axles are right now. I am assuming they are AMC 20 on the front and Dana 30 on the rear.

(Please keep replies in laymen terms)
