Nitro, you are the life saver! After massive leak I had due to seal being pushed in too far, I ordered new one and tapped it in per your instructions, flushed diff with liquid gold fluid ($$$) and all good now

Wow..this info would have been worth its weight in gold a few weeks ago. I replaced my seals during my subframe reinforcement and had them leak too, but I didn't realize it until it was too late. I lost all the oil I'm my diff and had it seize on me. Been a nightmare ever since. Ended up having to get a rebuilt diff. Silverlining is that I upgraded to 3.91 gear ratio.
