if it were me, i would look at cost to fix with new vs junkyard, could wind up with same or worse promblem in a year, if you are planning to keep for any length of time fix with new and use a synthetic oil of your choice, i would use amsoil servere gear lube. but some times a persons buget says different

Why would you ignore a leaking diff? Where was it leaking; from the diff cover or the pinion seal?
