    this just sucks. . . all new seals in the rear end and it's started leaking again. i remember seeing some areas with chunks missing where the bearing goes, like as if it were brick and someone had hit it with a hammer, just little ships out of the axle, maybe that would do it?

    Maybe the axle is worn, or when you put the new seal in, and didnt put any goo on the spring to hold it on the seal while beating it in, the sping came off and now its leaking.
