Default Slight leak in front axle

I got underneath my truck yesterday and noticed a slight leek in my front axle. It looks like it is a grease like substance coming from where the passenger side axle goes into the transfercase.

Anybody have this issue?

I put a 2" leveling spacer in the front end could this have caused it?

If you're talking about where the axle tube goes into the differential, it's probably just the sealer that goes between the two.

That sounds right, I will keep an eye on it to see if it leeks any more. Thanks!

I was just under my truck yesterday, same thing......, mine was just starting to form a drop, I did have some oil on the lower control arm bracket, very little, something you could see the wind was getting at. I wiped mine up around the axle tube seal and I guess I will wait to see what becomes of it, the shitty thing for me is the closest dealer is 4 hours away.

I had a small drip on the floor on my gararge since shorly after the last oil change (at dealership). When I brought it back for the next oil change I told them about it and low and behold they had to replace some seals in the front diff. it was ofcourse under waranty. So far so good.
