    I recently tried to fix a front passenger side axle seal on my truck. Got the seal at the Stapp toyota dealership and replaced the old with the new one in the same spot as the old one. Still leaking apparently and called toyota they were no help. Talked to the parts guy for 10 minutes bout the problem then tranfered over to services and they told me the inner seal is whats causing the leak. Then transfered back to parts for a price check on the inner seal and he says there isn't an inner seal the one i replaced is the only one. So what the hell is leaking? To have it done at the dealership they want $240 for a part that cost me $26. Can't afford a shop to do it with what i make at my job so i do all my mechanics on my truck myself with some friends help. I posted a pic of the leak easy to tell where its coming from just look at the only clean dark spot. Any info on this please let me know and what i can do to fix this. This truck is my daily driver to work and back plus having some fun in the mountains on the weekends.
