front axel leak

while installing my steering shock I noticed a oil leak on the front diff
on the long side (pass) where the axel is bolted to the diff
with 14000 miles on mine I need to take in asap
I never have good luck with new vehicles and you guys with out the warranty
may want to keep a close eye on that

Seals are wearing at 14K, That's always a comfortable thought. 54K for a truck, and a 2 dollar part giving way

Just noticed that my passenger side seal is leaking as well. I have 65,000kms on my 2011 3500. I wonder if it is covered under the power train warranty or if there will be a recall?

I just spoke with the dealer about mine leaking as well.. I didn't even get the chance to explain what was leaking .. He cut me off and laughed and told me exactly what was leaking.. Apperently it is very common on the newer trucks
