If the tranny has over 150k miles then I would rebuild it. The rubber that is failing for one seal is the same age as all the other seals inside and out.

Proper front seal replacement including the pump O-ring require partial disassembly anyway. Right at about half the labor to do the whole thing. Its like rolling the dice. Odds are it will be apart within 50-75k for something else if not sonner.

Front seals do leak, yes it is common.

If the tranny is shifting well, I'd do the front pump reseal with a rear main seal while there and let it roll.
