i got a 00 WJ , and my rear axel is leaking on one side. more exact the right wheel in the back, is leaking, would that be a bad seal? i think its leaking from the seal, the outer one. i see small dripping behind the brake rotor on the back side of the wheel. Should i get it taken care right away,? is it something that is crucial?

does that have drum brakes in the back??? if it does, then it could also be a leaking wheel cylinder. either way you should replace it ASAP. if it's brake fluid, then you could loose the rear brake. not to mention it'll get all over the brake shoes.

if it's the axle seal, then you'll gradually loose gear oil and overheat your rear diff. and not to mention it'll get all over the brake shoes.

if the break shoes get soaked up enough with either, you'll need a brake job.

its in the shop as we speak. i still haave part of the extended waranty i got it with so they are fixing it. that sucks tho. anyway, i got disc brakes in the back, i gues i was lucky i had to change my oil, and the oil place spoted it in time, so. woo it was a 250 bux repair. as they quoted, but its all covered by waranty :0
