    hey guys, well i got my rear seal replaced since it had a small leak where the tranny meets with the driveshaft, a month later and the leak is now back. turns out when they replaced it they used the old seal, theres a new tsb out that is a thicker seal, heres some info. Talked to my service guy and gonna replace it on monday, guess the problem is occurring more and more so heres the new tsb.

    Does the TSB have any info on what production date introduced the double-lip seal?

    I actually didn't know about this TSB. Gonna have to check my '06 for any leaks.

    Is there a mileage cutoff for the TSB? I have 43k on mine right now.

    There's no mileage cutoff on TSBs at all. It just details the particular repair for a customer complaint. If your truck is under warranty (and the system inc question is covered), warranty should cover the cost of performing the TSB.

    If you're out of warranty, they will still use the TSB, but you're paying for the repair.
