seal leaking oil after replacing

I replaced the front diff seal on my 01 tacoma on the passenger side after it had a small leak. Well after putting the new seal on and new cv joints it still has a leak??? Does anyone know what the problem could be???

Do you think it went in wrong? I have a toytec coil over lift and its set at 3" right now my axles have a litte bit of an angle... Do you think that could be the issue!?

i dont think thats the issue but i am no expert.....
it took my dealer 3 times to get my front diff seals right.....
when yiour putting in the seal n cv it must be perfect.....
your breather isnt clogged or non working is it..that would cause a buildup of pressure insdie the diff and blow the seals out......
but since its the same one "same side" i would say seal got messes up or something
