 Leaking Front Axle Case: Should I Fix?

Hope I can get some good wisdom. I have a Kubota L2950 4WD. Towards both ends of the front axle where the bevel gear case attaches with 5 bolts occurs a leak of gear oil. Its not running out but I do park in a workshop with wood floors and its soaking through a refrigerator box (now backed with plastic). I thought I'd replace the gasket (if there is one). I am told a leak from this spot is pretty common for a 7 year old tractor. Can anyone advise as to the necessity and the ease of doing this? It looks like I'd have to remove the front wheel/tire from each side. Or should I just let it drip???Best regards, Joe

 Leaking Front Axle Case: Should I Fix?

I guess it's easy for me to say that I'd just check the oil level frequently. I have an oil pump and topping up oil levels isn't much of an aggravation. Oil leaks are aggravating though, but so is fixing them. I'd probably get a manual to see how much work installing new seals is. I could then decide when one aggravation was overtaking the other. I would keep in mind that any tear-down always contains the possibility of broken studs, stripped threads etc. I've had more than one aggravating day turn into really bad ones.
