Bad Seals

I have a 96 GC Laredo that seems to have an issue with the rear axel seals leaking. I changed them and the bearings about a year ago and the right
side is starting to leak again. ?

the vent on top of the axle is probly cloged. i used a small drill bit and drilled it out on the rear of mine. there is probly build up in the line or the nipple on the axle.

If the above tip doesn't work then I'd pull the shafts again and check for any abnormal wear where the seal rides. Any pits greatly reduce the seal service life.
