need quick help with opinion

I changed rear gearoil a week ago. I thought i had a bad pass wheel axle seal.I replacedittoday with ford part.
issue, it calls for just a hair under 4 quarts. I wasfilling and i got almost or got 4 3/4 quarts to go in . Nothing comes out the fill plug, nor did it. It seems though, it wastoo much. been leaking not pouring out but leaking not dripping. Its still full. But again, removed fill plug its full still but nothing comes out. maybe pinion angle and allowing extra in? The axle seals wont hold fluid in if its got extra in it right? They willallow dluif to seap by.
ps vent is not clogged
thx in advance

your pinion angle shouldnt be that great.I mean,to allow for too much gear oil.Have you shimmed the rearend?If not,your pinion anlge hasnt changed.

if nothing comes out then its not full, and rear end would have to be angled quite alot to make it hold alot more than spec , where are you filling it at

weird, cause owners manual says just under 4 qts. I added like 16 oz of additive plus almost 5 quarts. I know, I never heard that its over full even though its not coming out the plug.
But i can remove the plug and look at it and its still right about level with it. Its still full. Stick finger in its all wet. (cant believeI just said that )
I have only had it 2weeks(truck) but i dont remember the tire being allweton the inside til after i changed gear oil.
isnt 5 quarts too much??

obviously this is a dually and it is very common to have an axle seal leak on any full float axle , and there is a certain amount of fluid that is running down each axle tube , thats how it lubes the bearings on the ends of the housing , if the fluid is level with the plug hole , leave it alone , if you can see it there

and ill leave the wet finger part alone myself
