If it's not a 2500 series Avalanche, then you would in fact have c-clips that are holding the axles in. If you've got a posi rear end, the block that is in between the spider gears kind of hides the view of the c-clips. They are a bit more of a pain to get out, but not terrible. Have a friend push the axle inward towards the differential to give you enough play to get the c-clip out. A small magnet works wonders here. Then you can remove the axle and change the seal and bearing. Easy!
