I went to the dealership yesterday to get the driver side seal on the rear axle replaced under warranty. Ther passenger side was replaced in July '08 with 32,000 on the odometer. The truck is now at 52,500.
I pick the truck up at 1:00 and go on my merry way. At 5:00 I notice the smell of gear oil. I look at the axle and sure enough the seal is leaking again. I go back to the dealership and the head mechanic takes one look and says, "You're gettin' a new axle." All I could say was "Ok," and "This is covered under warranty right?"
I'm just glad it happend at 52,500 miles and not 62,500.
