is the leak coming from the seal on the rear diff cover or is it leaking from the casing itself?

if they replaced all the seals, diff cover and pinion seal, and its coming from the center the only thing left is the housing. aam axle housings have had a few problems with the chunk spinning on the axle tube, big tires with traction and a strong motor can do this but its not very often. if you didn't know or anyone else thats not familiar with traction bars when you hit the throttle going forward your tires roll forward but the torque of the motor threw the ring ang pinion pull the axle housing upwards. one going up and going down something's gotta give, many lift kits have these becouse of the extra flex in the springs. take some strong degreaser and clean it up good then drive a little to get the gear lube warm then get back under there and look for wetness in the seems where the axle tubes are pressed in. its not very often but some times
