Well, my car axle seals seemed like that too. But there was no stains around them, so I guessed that it could be anything but a leakage. Air flow would drag diff fluid to some place down there, but simply there were none.

So I cleaned it up with some cloth soaked with diesel, and after 500 miles, it is still clean.

Sorry, if you're not meaning the axle itself, but the area around, then you may have a leaking seal.

About the driveshaft, there's no problem on disconnecting from the gearbox. Just number all the bolts and nuts to return them to same place, and be careful on lowering it. Better if you have another person to help you holding it, but you can do it with jack stands or wooden blocks by yourself.
