The dealership replaced a squealing pinion bearing a couple months ago and I never really paid any attention to that area since the noise was gone. We are getting ready to go on vacation so I had to change back to the stock wheels/tires since my normal ones limit my towing capability, they're 3 sizes larger than stock. Anyway, there is gear lube all over the rear wheels!! I pulled the fill plug and the fluid was still above that level and it drained about 8 to 10 ounces out. The gear lube was dry on the wheels, and none leaked out on my 50 mile commute to and from work today. My question is, what should I do now? Are my axle seals shot or is it normal for excess lube to come out in this manner.

We're leaving for vacation Friday morning so I need help fast!!!

Any help/suggestions are greatly appreciated,

Ron

if too much pressure didnt build up you should be fine. your axle vent should prevent that. thats my guess

Sounds like the seals are bad.
