    fluid leakin from rear U joint?

    Im almost positive I know what this is but im a n00b and need some advice....

    My tranny has been out for a month or 2 now (or so i think) and when i jacked up the front of the car to look at the tranny again and make sure everything is hooked up right.....

    Well when i was getting out from under the car I looked towards the rear and noticed a fresh puddle under the rear end....I took a look out of it and it looks like this oil is coming out from around the rear u joint....

    Any ideas?

    Sounds like pinion seal leaking.
