today I jacked up the truck, took the rear wheels off and the drums off. Passenger side looked high and dry. The drivers side in the center of the brakes, there was some wet sludge grease build up but the brakes were fine. This tells me it's been leaking for sometime now but it's a very very slow seapage kinda leak.
One other thing, I started the truck and put it in "D" and watched both sides see If I could see something(I know probably not the smartest thing to do, but cool to see anyway) not a drop spilled out. I let it sit there and run for a good 1/2 hour so that should've been plenty of time to heat up and thin down the gear oil. I reved it up a few times and while reving it, I kept hearing this whirling kinda sound. Best way I can describe it is when you can hear disc brakes engage only slightly louder. That's my only suspicious evidence that the axle bearings could be going south or is just normal because of all the moving parts? I'll keep my eye on the gear oil and let it ride -Mike-
