Did the shop warranty the gears and the install? If they warrantied the install then you might, if they are feeling nice do it for you.

But seals do fail and it has been 6 months since the install.

I just noticed my driver side front is leaking. Only have 25,000 miles but I was parked with it flexed out on a rock with the drivers side low for about an hour. That couldn't have helped lol
