Axle seal and braking pulse

The other day I changed the passenger's side wheel hub assembly on my 96 Cherokee and while I was at it I decided to do the brakes as well.
When I took it for a test drive I noticed that when coming to a stop the front right side had a sort of pulse when braking. I looked it over and everything seemed to be fine.
Today I looked at it again and I noticed that I had differential fluid coming out of the axle. I guess I must have damaged the seal when I changed the wheel hub assembly. (Even though I didn't need to, I took the whole axle shaft out that day to have a look at the axle shaft)
Could this faulty seal be the cause of the pulse I feel while braking or could it be something else?
