All of a sudden, out of the blue, my rear diff is dripping. Haven't crawled under yet, any thoughts?
Pinion Seal ?
FYI, understand the term "pinion bearing pre-load "
Captain, have you had your rear end rebuilt recently or something? "Usaually" if you dont have the correct, "Pinion bearing pre-load" your pinion nut can back off a little and cause the pinion to wobble a little bit and thus the pinion seal starts leaking.
#2. You just could have a bad pinion seal that needs to be replaced, it happens.

Check your vent tube...that is what was causing mine to spring a leak...i fixed it once and then a few days later it started up again...cleaned out the vent tube and problem solved
