Drive shaft rear end seal pictures

Does anyone know if this a serious issue? It started leaving a 3-4 inch circle in the drive way last week.

Looks like a pinion seal leak. It could lead to bearing failure when the fluid level gets too low in your axle.

Mine leaked with about 50k miles on it. Took it in and had it fixed under my extended warranty

If I remember correctly it was like $350ish for parts and labor.

Reading a little more on this it seems to be a fairly straight forward repair. Any suggestions or things to look out for?

check your vent tube also , if it's blocked pressure builds and will force oil past a seal.

that nut has a preload if your just pulling the nut to do the seal mark the nut on the pinion,and count the threads so you put it back exactly where it was

I done this repair to my truck last year just be sure you mark your driveshaft flange and count threads on the pinion nut. Not to bad of a job seemed to work for me no problems as of yet.

Is this something that can be done on jack stands or do I need a lift?
