front axle seal

Was under my truck ('09 4x4, ~127k) the other day and noticed a wet/oily spot on the passenger side axle, where the axle (CV shaft, I guess) comes out of the housing. Doesn't appear to be leaking much- certainly doesn't mark the pavement where I park it.

I'm thinking the seal is probably pretty cheap...but not sure how much of a pain it is to get to it?

Also kind of wondering if I really need to fix it at all...I probably will regardless, but if it doesn't get worse in much of a hurry, it's not causing any issues to speak of right now.

My 04 has weeped for years. No drips just wet I check the oil but it doesn't appear to go down any so I haven't worried about it.

the outer seal is just a dust seal on the front axles... the actual axle seals are on the inside of the housings.. least on the dana 60's they were.. not sure what the 09's had up front.

'09 Ranger is IFS...the seal isn't out at the wheel, but once the CV is out of the way it should be accessible.
