Thanks for the welcome. The was installed almost a year ago and the seal has not leaked for 8 or 9 trips. I lent the Rhino to a good friend who said he got it off the ground a few times. I'm thinking, since the suspension doesn't have limit straps, the axle could have been slightly pulled out, there could be dirt or rocks in the seal, or the seal may have been damaged. Do those axles just pull out? What about the clips I keep hearing about? Do they hold the axles in? I'm thinking of removing the spindle (from the a arms) and pulling the axle out of the diff without removing it from the spindle side. Would this work? Thanks in advance for any and all help.
