    My Dana 44 is leaking (about a drop every 3 days) at the axle tube diff housing interface. Is there an easy way to fix this or should I go out and buy another leak free D44. I hate leaks.

    Thanks Chief. The local 4wd suggested welding but I thought maybe a little flex would crack the weld. Thought maybe something a little more pliable, some type of Silicon. Bottom line, I can weld it and if it doesn't work trash it and buy a new one. THANKS. :D
