    I've had this problem with a previous Blazer. I replaced the the leaky rear seal (I even dabbed a little silicone around the lip before pressing it in) but the leak continued. Now I've got another Blazer (actually a Jimmy) and this leak is even worse! Any of y'all have any tricks for fixing this???

    I try to shy away from that stuff. But you say it worked okay for you? I may try it anyway, cuz there are a couple more leaks here and there, the slip-yoke being the worst. On the other hand slinging all that ATF under the truck helps keep the rust down on the floor pans /forums/images/icons/laugh.gif

    You might want to try a new slip yoke & seal. A Dana/Spicer yoke and Chicago Rawhide seal cost me less than $20 about 5 yrs agao, I doubt its gone up much.

    bigjbear might have a good idea...your yoke might have a groove worn into it causing it to leak even with a new seal in the case...
