How much do you think a shop would charge to replace 1 axle seal?

    Yeah well i thought it might not be coming from the seal a while back but it's very obvious it's the seal. I can lay under my car and spin the axle and see it drip out. Not to mention that the axle is spitting the fluid all over the place and there are no signs of leakage above the axle.

    The drips are usually coming from the lowest spot on the tranny, right next to the drain plug. Soemtimes they drips off the crossmember.

    Is this a reman axle? It might not be the same DIA as OEM so it's leaking.

    No unfortunately it's a stock axle that came with the car...

    Well i finally got it fixed!!! I brought it to AMS which happens to be very close to where i live. I got it fixed for under $100, pretty amazing. They did a great job because it doesn't leak anymore. However now may car needs an alignment badly. Now how would this screw up the alignmnent? When i tried to do it myself on on my garage floor i put everything back together and my suspension was fine, now my wheel is tilted 5 degrees to the right when i'm going straight. Could something not be right or is this normal?

    No info was given as to what was causing the leak. What did AMS do to correct the problem?
