Default D30 Axle seal questions...

I've been driving around in the 2000 XJ I recently lifted and noticed that now the knuckle on the passenger side is filling with gear lube. What do I need to know before I crack open the bottle of Jack and attempt to replace this seal. Will I need any bizarre tools, or is it usually a sign of something worse (bad bearing, etc.) Do you normally have success removing it and replacing seal from tube end or will I have to remove carrier and push seal out?

Thanks in advance!

I'm pretty sure that you have to pull the carrier to replace the seal...it's inside the differential. Fairly straightforward. Pull tires, hubs, axles, diff cover, carrier, seal...reverse.
