Axle seal still leaking!!!!
Noticed my front axle was leaking gear oil about two weeks ago, brought it to a shop and they replaced inner axle seals, two days after i had my car back i noticed they were still leaking. So i called the shop and they blamed it on a bad u joint so they wouldn't refund me. I went to orileys and bought 2 seals and decided to replace them my self, after finding out they sold me the wrong seals i went to the local jeep dealership and picked up mopar seals, replaced them put everything back together, the next day they were still leaking???

Oil will leak/pour into the axle tubes. What you are seeing is likely the residual oil leaking out of the tubes and not the seals leaking.

Get some Gunk, clean, wait a day or two, repeat. Should stay clean.
