|Pine_Cat||Thanks for chiming - when I experienced your front shaft point I could hear it going, so that's why I came across as skeptical|

Is it the front drive shaft where it goes into the transfer case (the rear CV joint)? If the rubber boot is toast, this can leak grease and then start to make noises etc.
This CV joint is completely replaceable and you can do it yourself for $36.

Why did the transmission need to be rebuilt? High mileage? Was it run without enough fluid?
There may be some misunderstandings here. Driveshafts don't contain a reservoir of grease that can spring a leak, so maybe it's something else?

New Transmission, Now Drive Shaft Leak
Just got the transmission rebuilt on a 2012 last week. In the meantime the wheel studs also went bad and had to get those replaced. While the folks fixing the wheel studs had it up on the lift, they noticed the drive shaft was leaking grease. I was not there so I didn't see it, but we took the Liberty back to the mechanic who fixed the transmission and asked them to take a look. They told us that it will be $500 to fix the issue with the drive shaft and that the leak had nothing to do with the transmission fix. My question is, is it possible to rebuild the transmission without taking the drive shaft off? We have had this vehicle for 2 years and before the transmission went, never had an issue with the drive shaft.
