    There is, albeit, I can't rememeber who. also, I have seen a few threads about using carpenter's foam to accomplish the same thing.

    Yea I just bought a set of those from MAD. Haven't installed them yet and I'm still suspicious of them even working. I posted up on a couple boards asking who has run them with no responses. Either they are too new a product or people are just too suspicious of them to waste the money. I dunno- we'll see if they work.

    If it's leaking all ready? What you got gear oil running out the end of your axle tube? There are two dif types of that expansion foam- one stays pliable (preffered) and one turns rigid (not preffered). I was considering using old boddy bushings and grease the piss outta the area against the shaft.

    yep gear oil out the axle tube. one started after i parked it. towed it to my dad's then the other one started. i just replaced all the bearings and lockouts then they started leaking. i hate to have to go back through all that work. dang things couldn't have leaked while i had them apart. geez...my works never done.

    Sounds like you need to do an overhaul on the dif then. Pull the chunk and replace those seals. The outter axle seals are not to be used as a repair for the inner seals. Those are the crusial ones.

    We put the Mad4wd seals in my wife's rig but they haven't been in there long enough to get any kind of results yet. We have had to replace the axle shaft seals several times in her buggy and if these tube seals help the inner seals live longer they will be worth it.
