Front axle leak

OK....ive replaced both seals on the front axle of my 01 GC 4x4 and its still leaking on passenger side. I first did all this work because the passenger side was leaking and thought since I had to tear everything apart I would do both sides. I plan to replace the seal again but only on passenger side. What else could be causing the leak? Could it be the axle shaft being bent or groove where seals rides messed up?

Any help is greatly appreciated.

What brand of axle? I had same problem with advanced auto axles. Oem or new napa fixed it for me. I went through 2 sets of seals before swapping axles. Took advanced axles back and got the $$ back.

Bent shaft or scouring would cause issues as well.

Right now the one that is in my GC to my knowledge is the factory one.

Don't you just love members who start two threads on EXACTLY the same problem only an hour apart. Why do it? You won't get any more answers!
