Here's some history:
In December my Z71 was rearended by a Ford F350 SuperDuty while I was waiting for the guy in front of me to turn left. The other truck was doing 35-40 mph and had less than 5' of brake marks on the street. The rear bumper was shoved under the truck, the spare tire was jammed into the diff, and the pinion angle was rotated up so far that it was almost impossible to drive it the remaining mile home.
Fast forward to April. When my front right caliper locked on a road trip with a trailer in tow I got it fixed at a Pep Boys. The guy shows me that my rear axle seals are leaking too, so I replace them the following weekend once I'm back home.
Fast forward to 2 weeks ago. Took the truck to Sears for an alignment and the guy noticed that the right rear seal is leaking again, but not much.
Fast forward to Sunday night. I went out to the truck and found a puddle under my right rear tire[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/mad.gif[/img]. I found another puddle Monday night[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/mad.gif[/img] (parked in a different place).
So now I'm going to replace both seals again (found the other one leaking when I was checking fluid level last night), but seriouslly wonder if the wreck didn't tweak the axle just enough to cause this problem. I've replace inner and outer axle seals before in many different types of axle's without them ever leaking, so I doubt I could have screwed this simple job up that bad.
If they leak again after this I'm finding a SF 14bolt and regearing the front to match it.
