    You had a ProComp lift put on! That's what you did wrong.

    Just playing. I have no idea what you might have done. I know our trucks have issues with that needle bearing right there. Maybe it tore up and punctured the seal?

    I had the seal on the right front go out.. It would leak a teaspoon full of oil while sitting overnight.. Funny thing is it didn't leak when I drove it. I managed to drive it for 2 weeks that way before it was repaired under the
    7 yr 100,000 powertrain warranty.. I would monitor till you get it to the shop.

    BlueT and Pope, thanks for the responses, definitely put my mind at rest for the time being. Now how difficult is it to replace, haha

    In my defense I bought the truck from a good friend with the lift on it, it's certainly not my first choice. Once I have disposable income again, if I'll ever have it again, I would like to up grade to the all pro LT.

    Aside from the oil leak, something in the second picture doesn't look right. The horizontal bolt that goes through that bracket and bushing looks bent. I may be offbase, but the gap from the top to the bottom isn't the same...

    Marc, I see exactly what you're talking about. Just went out and checked and sure enough that bracket is not flush...damnit.

    Yup! Definately bent it! Good eyes! Make sure it's straightened out before it goes to dealer. If you take it to dealer.

    How should I go about straightening it? Just tighten it until it's flush?
