Post Outer Hub Transfer Case Leak

I installed a SYE kit on my 2005 TJ and the outer hub now has a leak in it like the seals already went bad and was wondering what is the easy way to fix this problem and if anyone has any suggestions as to were i could get this fixed because I'd rather have a professional or someone who knows what they are doing instead running the risk of doing it myself and screwing it up again. Thanks

Is it leaking from the output shaft seal, the rear output housing, or somewhere completely different? Just not sure what you mean by "outer hub".

Its leaking from the seal on the rear output housing sorry. The oil seal behind the yoke is leaking when I drive it so I have to top off the transfer case every 3 weeks or so.

It's not difficult to replace the seal at all. If you don't already have one, a seal puller will make life a little easier (they are just a few bucks at auto parts store). One thing to check is to make sure that the circular spring is on the right side (the spring squeezes the rubber part of the seal around the shaft). I'd check to make sure that the nut that holds the yoke is still torqued to spec as well before I jumped to replacing the seal (especially since you recently did the SYE install)

Other than that, the seal could have been damaged when installed and you may just have to replace it and be extra careful not to damage it.

What brand sye? If its the crown or rugged ridge kit do a search on here for an upgraded seal part number. You can get the seal from your local parts store.
