    Front Differential leaking from driveshaft joint

    I recently installed a 1 MORE MML lift and I now notice that I have fluid leaking from the rear of my front Diff where the drive shaft attaches to it. I Didn't change the pinion angle when doing the lift... I just followed their instructions. the fluid doesn't smell lift diff fluid it actually smells like oil but I guess that's a little impossible. Any ideas? would the MML cause the the diff to leak?

    your pinion seal is leaking...this happens and has nothing to do with the MML ,you should get it fixed , if oil can leak out water can leak in

    I bet DC will say the MML changed my pinion angle which caused it to leak. extra stress and bla bla bla.

    Don't tell them you have a MML. You think those idiots will know any different?

    4 words.... don't - trust - service managers! I never had anything covered under warranty except for my thermostat. I did have a lift, they knew I used it offroad and it was used against me every time - regardless of circumstances. IMHO, have some fun, grab the kit and do it yourself.... it could save you some potential grief !
