Default front differential leak

I was under the truck the other day a notice what seem to be a leak on both side of the the front axle.

I just want to replace the seals but it seems no one sales just the seal, they sold a bearing and seal kit for 140 or more. does anyone know where i can get both seal from or a part number.

and has anyone done this on their blazer, any tips?

just did both mine a few weeks ago, the part is called an axle shaft seal, you can find it for about $10, I purchased mine at oreilly auto's.
As per replacing them, how mechanically savy are you? If not much (like myself) grab a chiltons manual and it will tell you everything, i can't stress this point enough!
Tips:
get a balljoint separator!
have a 5lb hammer
have a 1/2" torque wrench with appropriate socket sizes for ball joints, and a 35mm axle socket
on the passenger side seal remove the lower shock bolt to lift the shock out of the way to make room to properly seat the cv joint on the axle shaft splines.
make sure you have two days to do this if your like me lol
