Front diff oil leaking - Overfilled?

Hi Everyone....I recently changed the driveshaft seal and front diff fluid. The fluid has been slowly leaking from the seal area while the machine is parked. Could I have overfilled the diff and would it leak if I did? It seemed to take about 3/4 bottle of fluid which seemed like a lot. Thanks in advance

Did you change the seal wear ring on the yoke . If not itís going to leak until itís replaced.

I did not change it; that must be it. Thanks for the info.

Yeah the seal and wear ring wear together. So they typically donít mate back up when seal is replaced .
