Question Help, rear wheel bearing still leaks!

Ok, so its been in the shop twice now for the same problem in the last month. And at 2 different shops. The bearing is fine, i just keep having gear oil leaking from around the drivers side passenger wheel. It have drum breaks. There are no break leaks. Anyone have any idea what could keep causing this to happen?

Where did all the money go? Ohh yeah thats right.

Deep grooves in the axle won't allow the seals to seal properly. Pull it apart and see what's going on. It's not too difficult to do.
