Re: Front axle CV seal leaking
I noticed today that i am leaking right behind the cv axle where it goes into the differential
Sounds like your axle might have popped out of the dif. The cv axle has a flange that bolts up to the dif itself, so if you are leaking on the inside of the flange (towards the center of the truck), that would be your dif leaking. I'm not aware that you can leak fluid from the u-joint on the cv axle. If it is just the half-shaft, it should be an easy fix. If it is your dif, you can try popping it back into the dif, but if the c-clip is broken or damage to the dif, you might be in for a new front dif. Post some pics and we can help more.
