Leaking passenger rear end

Postby EddieDel84 [OP] » October 19th 2013, 4:39pm

Have a 01,RWD. Have a issue where the gear oil leaking thur the passenger seal. It gets on the brakes and tire. I have changed seals 4 different times from different stores. :evil: Change axle shaft. Notice its leaking again and pretty bad. :banghead: Does it sound like a new axle housing is needed and if so any suggestions on housing as all i find is used.

I have always done bearings along with the seals "on both sides" if I find a leak. Bearings can easily be worn enough to cause this problem. Since you have already changed the axle, did you check the bearings?

"Leaking passenger rear end" (???)

Consider putting a waterproof covering on the passenger seat before they get into

your truck. (Ha) I guess it depends on how much it's leaking...

Can you determine if it is leaking from the seal or the housing around the seal? Your housing end(tube) could be damaged so you might have to try and straighten or use a sealant when pressing the seal back in. I can see how this can happen if the last guy to do the seal did not have the proper tools to remove the seal and bearing.

If it is leaking around the new axle, the only thing I can think of would be too much in/out play but even with that it should not leak and would be a whole other animal.

Unless this is break fluid. Not saying you would make that mistake but it has happened.
