98 Z71 rear axle seal

I have a 98 Z71 noticed that i had gear oil in the driveway. I saw the passenger side rear leaking. I need some info on how to replace and if anything should be replaced when doing it. and if both sides should be done. thanks.

Do both sides,remove both wheels ,drums and axles.The axles are removed by pulling the cover off the rear axle assembly then remove the bolt retaining the pinion shaft and then the pinion shaft push in on the axle and remove the c clip(don't rotate the axle shaft or the diff side gears may be dislodged)remove the axle shaft and seal and reverse the above to reassemble.Use a new cover gasket and gear oil.
