    Hey guy's
    I've got a 1990 toyota pickup 4x4 5 speed
    I was crawling underneath and found a mass amount of build up of some sort of oil right where the differential connects to what i think is the rear pinion?
    could it just be a seal? I hope so! thoughts?

    I was wrong! after further review, the leak is coming from where the differential connects to the axle casing. it is not the pinion. will this be a hard fix?
