83SD rear end

I discovered a leak around the rear end of my car. I thought it was a fuel leak but when I cleaned it up it looks like it oil leaking out of the rubber boot at the rear end on the drivers side. The rubber is cracked. Does the oil from the rear end lube ( looks like a cv joint) this area or is it a leaking seal allowing oil into this area?
What is the best way to repair this. Can you order rebuilt half shafts and install them at home? Need any special tools? Can you or should you replace just the rubber boot? Thanks, Ken
