Replacing rear axle seal and already have 1 piece axles from previous owner

I am getting tired of topping off my rear diff once a week for 14 weeks I been here. I have been putting it off all this time because I don't want to get in over my head. I need to know if I can replace the rear axle seal with just the hand tools I have in a parking lot. I do have a seal puller. I do not know when the 1 piece axles were installed and I do not know what brand the they are.

Take a stab at it. The one piece axles are ALOT easier to work
with than the two piece factory ones!

Hope the bearing spacer ring is not stuck in the housing. Happens sometimes.
