Leaks on the rear differentual can usually occur at 3 places the axle housing,or at the axel shaft oil seals.If it were to be the axel housing gasket it would be visible around the housing cover.Also inspect the axel housing slip yoke seal this will also be visible.The next seals you want to check would be the axel shaft seals.In order to get to these seals you will have pull the tires and drums.Once you have them off take a flashlight and look behind the axel end for any oil leaking.Those would be the only places it would leak oil.
SEAL COULD BE LEAKING CAUSE YOU DIDNT LUBRICATE THE SEAL LIPS WITH PETROLEUM JELLY TO HELP THE THE SEAL LIP SEAL OR YOU DAMAGE THE SEAL WHILE DRIVING IT IN.AXLE FLANGE NUTS TORQUE IS 58 FT LBS THE AXLE HUB NUT TORQUE IS 177 FT LBS.
you need to pull off wheels,brakes, rotor /unit hub bearing, both axles and intermediate shaft, as well as the vac disconnec ton the front axle tube. if only the right side leaks then only then only pull the right axle and intermediate shaft and vac disco. it is a trick with a miller tool to replace the seal. the left side seal is inside the diff and the carrier has to come out to replace it. pete
Drain axel of Fluid, Roemve Diff Cover (Push IN on Axel to reseal at Wheel side) Remove KEEPERS From Insied END of axel then Pull OUT on WHEEL END of Axel. use Proper Seal removal tool to remove seal. Also Use PROPER Install tool for SEAL INSTALL Reverse Procedure to Install. In hopes this helps you Out.
Please RATE Me Also LoL Thank You.
Loosen differential cover and let oil drain. Remove cover, remove E clip lock from axel. Pull axel out. Remove bearing seal. Install new seal and reinstall axel. Reinstall E clip lock and new cover gasket. Fill with 75-90wt gear oil. Now I know that sound pretty straight forward. But there are some things to remember. The E clip lock can be difficult to remove sometimes. The most important thing is the seal, you will need to make sure it gets seated correctly and not torn when installing axel

take the wheel off , unbolt caliper and sling it out of the way with a bungi cord, take off the rotor, then you have too take the pumpkin cover off the axel diff in the front (drain fluid first) easy way to do that take out bottom and side bolts out then leave top 1 or 2 in but finger loose. pry cover off with a sturdy scrapper from side allowing fluid to leak out from bottom of cover. when fluid is done comeing out then take off cover. to take the axel out to replace the seal you have to push the axel inwards to remove the C- CLIP on the end of the axel shaft that slides into the inside of the pinion gear (use a extending magnet) keeps gear oil on your hands and from dropping it into the pumpkin housing. then all you have to do is slide the axel shaft out. then replace the seal .
