    If we replace the seal and a new axle and it still leaks...guess what?? That's the only thing left and that would mean an entire new rear end!

    The surface on the inside of the housing where the inner axle seal seats seemed to be fine.

    Like I said, I have yet another seal. I'm going to use a generous amount of RTV this time, and pack the groove with grease. Hopefully it will work. If the leak was really small, I could probably live with it...even though I feel a rear end of this caliper should have ZERO issues.
    Hey 35th, I don't know why but I randomly thought of this post today and was wondering if maybe the housing isn't perfectly straight and putting a little side load on the seal and causing it to leak. You could put your car on an alignment rack and read the rear camber and rear toe readings to see if its "bent." Then get a print out so you have proof that the housing isn't straight and then hopefully they'll warranty it
    Are your rear tires wearing on the edges?

    Thanks Cutlass, that's a good idea. I probably won't be able to tell from tire wear. I haven't put that many miles on it since I had the 9" installed last summer due to this issue. I also just got new Nitto tires a few months after the install so they have little to no miles on them.
