I hope this does not find you too late to be helpful.

All that is needed is to remove the brake control linkages on the axle housing and to replace the seals.

You will need to remove the adjuster nut and may have some trouble with seized pins but, it is a fairly simple job and parts are not too expensive.

Please let me know if you need more details about this repair.
