Default Axel Seal Leak?

I have been trying to fix an oil leak on my 2003 GT 5 speed manual. I have changed the valve cover gasket since there appeared to be a slight leak at the right front side of the engine. I also replaced the oil filter adapter gasket. After this there did not appear to be a leak from the engine at idle. I drove the car about 120 miles and there was quite a bit of oil dripping out of the bottom right side. It seems to me that this leak is coming from the right drive axle/transmission seal since there appears to not be a leak at idle. The axles were replaced about 5000 miles ago(before I bought the car). Anyone have experience with this? I do not have my Chilton manual with me. Do I need it or special tools to replace the seal? Appreciate any help. I really want to get this taken care of.
