I just recently changed my Front and rear axle gears with some help from a friend. I now have a small leak out of the end of my front axle on the drivers side only, Could I have put in too much oil or maybe my seal did not seat well. It is a very slow leak just whetting the garage floor by the front wheel. If I have to I will drain and inspect the seal. Trying to avoid that if possible.

You either damaged or cocked the new seal putting it in, if you did the seals that is; or you damaged the seal re-installing the axle. If you didn't do the seals, you should have as they have a tendency to leak once disturbed and it takes disassembly to replace them. There is no way to inspect the seal with the axle and carrier in place, you will need to get back in there and replace the seals.
