I assume you have a Dana 30. I just installed PS diff covers. I measured out the 1 3/8 amount of fluid for the front. It started coming out the fill hole just at the end of the fill.
I just bought mine so unless yours are older/different design, I doubt it was overfilled.
If you just had gears done, probably the person who did your gears damaged the seal in some fashion.
Let us know what you find out.
Itís a D44, gears were done about 30k ago. @this point I assume that the seal may have been damaged but have little hope of getting the shop to fix the problem.
The hard reality of my situation is ďbudgetĒ. I donít like paying for work that I can do, even if it means humbling myself and asking for help.
Iíve wanted to do some upgrades anyway. My factory ball joints have over 45 k on them and are probably close to needing attention. Iíve been planning on upgrading some steering components and axle shafts as well.
Looks like a very inexpensive part is going to force my hand and cost me a couple ďKĒ
Iíll be replacing the leaking seals. Replacing/upgrading ball joints.
Upgrading axle shafts, if I can schedule the help Iíll put some sleeves in the tube, and gusset the Cís. (I donít weld anything that is important)
If I can catch a MetalCloak free shipping sale, Iíll get their tie rod/drag link kit too.
Hell, now that Iím thinking, Iíll probably do unit bearings while Iím at it, Iíll keep the ones I have now as spares. Seems stupid to not do the bearings while I have the stuff apart (they arenít a huge expense).
Looking at the YouTube, although slightly intimidating I think I can get r done.
