Gear oil Smell!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Got an 08 4X4 2500 quad cab. I have 85,000 miles and I started smelling hints of gear oil out of passenger side rear hub. Dont see any oil just the smell. Is this the potential dreaded seal change coming or just time to change the oil? Any help or experience with this would help Thanks Guys

I would prolly get the seal and change the oil all out at one time.
