What you might try first is clearing your axle tube vent line. What commonly happens is this line gets plugged with sludge or dirt and causes the axle to pressure up and force oil out the seals. Sometimes it's the pinion seal, sometimes the axle seal, or both. You need to pull the rubber tube off the fitting on the axle tube and clean it out with a drill bit and also blow the rubber line out with air. I had a major oil leak on my axle seal recently. I cleared the vent line and the leak stopped. Hope this helps.
