Grrrrr. AMC 20 advice????

Got home from work today and the wife says the rear diff is leaking and there is a little oil on the inside of the tire! I go take a look and the right rear is leaking, was thinking it might be brake fluid until I got the skunk smell of the addative from the locker, and after futher inspection, the pinion is leaking as well [img]images/graemlins/cussing.gif[/img].
Now for my question! Is it a freak thing that both seals go out at the same time or do I have some carrier problems? I know I realy wont know until I open it up and take a peak, I was just wanting some opinions so I can get ready for the worst. When I drove it last I thought something wasn't feeling right and her coment was, its the tires!!! Im thinking maybe a carrier bearing is gone causing everthing to sit out of wack and eating up the seals!

A plugged vent will blow out seals.
