Rear End Howl

I was driving to school and I was on the highway bout 10 min from school and i started hearing a howling around 45-50 mph. got home and looked under my jeep and the there is oil all over my rear passenger tire, wheel, control arm, frame, and everything else over there. Any ideas on what this is and how to fix it? Oh and its an LJ Rubi.

pinion seal is my guess, the howl is probably the pinion bearing gone bad as well.

Sometimes I question my sanity. Occasionally it replies.

Sounds like a similar problem I had a while back. Here's the link to the thread I started and was able to figure everything out.
MPG's? What are these things you speak of?
