It is that easy I have done them numerous times,I can replace the seal in about 15 min.
What do you mean by everything has to come off?
Take the tire off,take axle nut off,pull of hub assembly,install new seal.
You do not have to remove brakes shoes unless there covered in gear oil
also after you put it all back together you should tip the axle side to side to allow gear oil to refill the hub,and I use medium (blue) loctite on the axle bolts and torque to 75ft.lbs
