Front diff..can i fill it? also vibration probs

well i need to get some diff. fluid in the front axle but i was wondering if its possible to get some in there without taking it off/loweing it down.

i have a bad vibration coming from the pass. side and ive checked everything and i had a bad axle seal on that side and i think it may have gotten low enough to pose a problem. its like a fast vibration that makes the pass. seat a massage chair and rattles my center console. i was hoping to fix the axle when i get my suspesion kit but **** is happening quick and needs to be fixed.

any help would be great!

Yes, on the axle, on the drivers side there will be a 3/8" fill bolt. You stick a ratchet (just the ratchet, w/o a socket on it) in there and loosen it, you can fill it from that hole, and that is also the fill check hole, so when fluid is level with that, you are good to go!

LMK if you want pics I will take some if I already don't have em.
