Not sure if anyone else is having the same problem, but my truck is in the shop for the second time for a rear diff. pinion seal. Truck has only 29,500 miles. This second time started leaking like crazy. If any of you get a chance take alook back there to double check.

Thanks for the heads up. Just spent a couple of days under mine double checking the exhaust when I deleted and was pretty intimate with the rear axle for a while. Mine looks ok.

Hopefully the tech doing the work didn't gouge the metal.

I stopped at the job site to see a small puddle under the rear diff and pinion in covered. Pinion yoke is tight . It did not leak the rest of the day. It is going to the dealer for repair today. I have to take it to a dealer 40 miles away as my local dealer ( in Monroe Wa.) I will never set foot in again. They could not even look at the truck for 4 days, they did not care that this is the truck that makes me money.

At least your not close to a oil boom!! This winter I was told 30 days before I could get my truck in.

Make sure they are not overfilling also. Fill mark is on the cover, if gear oil is to fill plug then it's over filled.

Proper procedure that needs to be followed.

After mine was worked on twice it wasnt the seal but had a bad yoke from the factory causing the leaks. So far so good since the third time it was done.
