Well after doing the live axle swap i developed a drivers side axle leak. This is just one of multiple spots left in parking lots, in front of my garage and in the stalls at work. Not to mention the amount of fluid that was leaking out while driving. Yesterday with the help of a coworker i got the drivers side seal replaced.
