      Yes.
      There is an axle tube seal that you can press in the and it seals the oil from getting past the axle. I'll try to find the part number.

        The seals work for everyone else........so, wrong size seal for the axle you have......such as aftermarket size seal on stock axle or vise versa.......or, perhaps a bent, or ovaled tube........or slightly bent axle.....

        Perhaps a scratch in the tube where the seal seats........These are the things I'd check........but it's usually a bent axle......

        good luck

              Thanks,
              Our rules havn't allowed a for rear end in a chevy before so i don't know much about the nine inch. I will check these things out.

                We used a bearing called a repair bearing that uses an offset to move the contact area away from a damaged spot on the axle and it had the integral seal and I have never seen one of these seals leak, not to say it can't but I havent' seen it! I'll get the number tomorrow and post the BCA part number because everyone can cross those numbers.
                Peace,
