New rear axle seal leak, new axle next?
Got about 176K on my 99. Started to get a leak at the rear passenger axle seal so had my mechanic replace it along with the bearing. Its been about a week and the seal is still leaking. He is thinking of trying another seal, but the brand he used is a good brand, skf from NAPA I believe. Is it possible the axle could have gotten a groove in it allowing fluid to leak past the seal? I'm guessing if so I might need to get a new axle as well.
I replaced both of my rear axle seals/bearings with National from O'Reilly. One leaked. Replaced that one with a Timkin that I bought from Summit, which is holding. So maybe you should give the Timkin a try. Worth a shot.
