Post lift axle leak. Thoughts?
I've noticed gear oil has leaked onto the axle, and not all from the same location.
The vent tube: I noticed oil coming from the vent tube at the axle mount, and at the end that vents to the atmosphere. I don't know why the gear oil would be under any pressure to leak like that.
The passenger CV: This may be an easy fix, the guy who did the lift looked at it and thinks the lip seal is letting gear oil out.
Notes: No gear oil was added since very little was lost during the lift process. Fluid level was checked today and it's still full.
