notice a small leak where the shaft attaches to the rearend . is this a bad seal ? is it possible to fix with some type of stop leak ? didnt notice it until I took it mud riding.

you mean where the driveshaft goes into the rear diff??? that's your rear pinion seal.

if it's comming out of the side by the tires, then those are your axle seals.

no you can't use any stop leak. you have to replace the seals.

check your vent tube that comes of the top of the axle and make sure it didn't get ripped of or plugged. if the vent tube gets plugged, it'll build up pressure and start blowing out the seals. but most likely you just have a pinion seal leak.

now that you mention a plug , I had a leak around my leaf and I traced the line up to a line that had a plug . kind of like a plug with a push button on the top of it . I wiped it off and pressed on it a few times . not sure if this is what your talking about... and will that seal be hard to replace , can I do it myself ?
