The right side axle seal is leaking a bit, should be an easy fix

Did you ever do this? Noticed my parking brake pads on one side had signs of slight gear oil seepage. What's the proper procedure to tightening the bearing? Any special tool needed?

you need a socket for the nut on the hub. Use a seal puller and make sure it’s 100% removed, and then press it back in.
‘To tighten it I put it all together and even the wheel on, then spin it as I crank it down, loosen and repeat a few times.. You need to crank it until you feel drag to make sure the hub seats on the spindle properly.
