Okay, My right rear axle seal was leaking, onto the tire and onto the garage floor.. So I pulled the axle shaft, and the bearing is fine the o-ring looks really good and the gaskets on the brake backing plate look like they were sealed good. I put a new o-ring and gasket sealer on the backing plates and it's still leaking diff fluid like crazy. What am I missing here? Is the bearing the seal and I need to replace it? Help!

If the differential is over filled it will leak out at each axle until it finds it's level, The diff. oil should be filled to the level of the plug on a level floor, if you fill it with the rear end high, that tends to overfill. there is a oil seep hole at each axle and they are not intended to "seal".
