Slip yoke seal, easy change. Just pull the shaft with a bucket under the case, unbolt the tail cone with 4 bolts, force out the seal(as gently as you can, not a time for excessive, uncontrolled force) and seat the new one, then just reverse of the previous.

Your shaft could be unbalanced which would lead to wear on the bearings at the t-case and pinion which would lead to seal failure. Or it could just be time to replace the $10 seals.
