Default Re: 2004 L300-1 Auto Axle Seal - Drv & Pass sides

On the passenger side, the outer seal normally sticks out about 1/2" from the case while the driver side is pretty much flush, if that's possibly what you're observing.

There is a spring around the lip of the outer seal to maintain pressure against the inner sleeve. Could the spring have been knocked out of its groove? This could be causing the leak.

Sounds like you're about as weary of this repair as I was. I hope your stop leak holds until you have a chance to check it out again.
