The shaft seal inside the diff. You have to pull both axle shafts, remove the diff cover then the carrier bearings, They are installed from the inside out

i also found out that the passenger side hub is wiggling a lot. i had a two friends think it was a wheel seal. but i dont know any way to find out besides pulling it out.
