    Hey, I just noticed that my 96 Tacoma is leaking fluid from the rear diff, it looks like its leaking right were the driveshaft connects to the rear diff. When i drive the driveshaft spins and throws the fluid everywhere. Is there a seal in there somewhere that could be changed and if so how?

    If you go to the toyota dealership near you they can look up the part (they will have exploded picks of your differential with part #s) and tell you how to do it,
