So I supercharged the car over the winter and had the trans torn down and an LSD installed. Took it out for a test drive and snapped the end of the axle off. Turns out I didnt have it in far enough. So I replaced the axle, got all the metal out and replaced the seal. I set the seal in with a seal tool to about where I would on every car and refilled the trans. A week later, big puddle under the car. So out comes the axle seal and in goes another new one. This one I set .040 further then factory to try a new spot on the sealing surface.... today.... another $50 worth of redline on the ground... I am so Tired of taking the left side suspension apart!!!! I am a mechanic by trade and have never had this issue. My only thought is that somehow the axle has too much movement in the diff or I am screwing this seal up something wicked without noticing. The housing is clean with no cracks or gouges. I saw a post on this a couple years back with no resolution. Ideas? Im gonna be running cheap fluid till I figure this out.
