    Throw your U-Joints away and get new ones!!! See the post titled "Public Service Announcement" for the reason why - It sounds like your grease seals got toasted, as well as your grease.

    Drop the T-case too (after you replace the joints)

    where is it leaking front or rear? from the u-joint or behind the dust cover on the yokes going into the pumpkin? there is a seal that can be replaced if it is behind the dust cover. check the oil in the differential if thats where it is. It'll be low if its slinging it everywhere.
