Front differential leak

Recommended Posts

Is a front differential leak common in these? It seems like the leak is coming from the seam between the 2 halves. that red sealant they used is intact on sides but on bottom its not as visible. I changed the gear oil last month and it seems to have gotten worse. The plug was a little fuzzy with shavings but not too bad and it was just fine shavings. Any suggestions?

Not sure if it is a common leak, but I had a leak at the bottom seam too. The dealer fix it under warranty and they also said they replaced the carrier bearings, Truck only had about 25,000 miles on it. That was about 7 years ago, Truck has 39,0000 miles now and no leaks, hope this helps
