Anyone had issues with overfilling the front differential? Replaced the fluid with synthetic about 4k ago, now both front cv joint seals are leaking... Is is a fill to level diff or fill to measure?

3 different leaks I've seen, the case seam flud leak is a popular one. They fixed mine under waranty, the case seals on the inner cv fluid leak, also warrantied, but the grease leak on the outer cv boots the axle shafts, due to lift geometry not covered. easy fix, clip off the crimp rings, grease needle some moly b into the boot, wipe of the old excess, then either re crimp a band or get a NON SLOTTED Hose clamp. on it. the slotted ones will wear hell on the rubber when tightened. Just my ADVICE. ;)
