Had some great times last weekend wheeling at Hidden Falls.

But now the jeep is leaking gear oil from both front tubes.

My axle is sleeved so I couldnt locate any OUTER tube seals to fit a dana 30.

Are new INNER tube seals my only options to keep from water getting into the diff?

Thanks!

I am sorry to say it but if you're tubes are leaking now, they're most likely bent. Inner seals are what you need but assuming your tubes are bent, it most likely will NOT stop the leaks.

Thanks Eddie.

Only way to find out if its bent is to remove both front shafts, gut the diff, replace the inner seals, reinstall then test drive?

Check your camber. Increased camber and or different camber right to left suggests a bent axle tube.
