Ok I have a 2002 2500hd 4x4 with the 6.0, It has a 6in lift with 35in tires. I changed the passenger side rear wheel bearing seal three times in the past 6 months. I replaced both inner and outer bearings each time they where bad. After a couple weeks of driving it starts to leak rear end fluid, it is a full floating axel. Once it starts to leak i keep the rear end full of fluid to prevent the bearings from going. I installed everything correctly each time and made sure that it is fully seated onto the spindel. I have checked the area where the seal mates with the spindel and there is no sign of roughness or burs. I eye balled the axel and it seems to be straight. I have run out of ideas, does any one have any ideas or have ever heard of a problem like this?
