If the pinion seal is leaking you only need to replace the pinion seal.

The National and Timken brands are good quality and will work that are listed on the Rock Auto differential pinion seal listing for your year and V6 engine.

To help prevent this from happening in the future also buy a pinion redi-sleeve to help make a better seal. Its inexpensive and easy to install.

As said above, a new seal and yoke shaft sleeve are your best bets. Replacing the bearing would entail much more work and wouldn't be necessary unless the bearing is noisy or there's particles in the case.

the pinion seal leak is likely due to a plugged axle vent. it should be on the top of the passenger side axle tube. replace with "turkey baster" type. good luck.

Lots of bolt on goodies...
