"If only the pinion seal was replaced I would not think you need to check the pinion pre-load. An inch-pound torque wrench typically used for bicycle repair is used to test pinion pre-load, this is with the axles removed."
That's possible but you would have to get the nut to exactly that same position it was before you took it off to the remove the seal. It's possible and I've seen posts where some mark the position of the nut, but that's hard to do and I wouldn't rely on that unless the preload read within the parameters.
