I do! Never a leak.. When my rear passenger side hub nut came off while riding it destroyed the threads on the end of the axle. So I replaced the axle and serviced the rear diff. Now everytime I go for a ride the differentional housing around that axle is wet. I took it to the dealer, they replaced the seal and re-serviced it.. First time I rode it afterward it's doing the same thing.

Yes part of the problem is when you replace a part or change the oil you let air enter a sealed system so when you change the oil or a part you have to get the air out once sealed the air dosent let the oil expand causing the extra pressure The thing that worked for me was to clamp the vent line and then compress the bellows and then install it unclamp the line and let the bellows expand clamp the line take the bellows off and compress it again then reinstall it clamp it the un clamp the line that worked for me until I took out my turf saver and forgot to do it and you know what happened. Yes you are correct a seal leak. But now I have done the vent mod to mine but for you guys that dont want to do the vent mod try what I did It worked for me. I also talked to an AC dealer out here and they agreed with me.
