    LD RAM - General Discussion
    Hi, two days ago I noticed a little bit of oil on the driveway since I started parking my truck in another spot. I know nothing about diffs, but I assume this is a pinion seal leak? It drips very slowly (I'd say 3 drips per day), but it looks very wet? I assume it must've leaked much worse when...

Link to the video is at the bottom When I heard this noise a week ago, I swore it was excessive bleed down from...
