    Hi all,

    When I was installing my lift blocks the other day, I saw oil around my rear differential. Looks like something is leaking. My truck has about 30k miles. I installed the lift blocks and was wondering if that would void my warranty?? Or should I remove the lift blocks than take it in? Please help!

    I would pinpoint where the gear lube is leaking from. 3rd member, pinion seal, or vent?

    It looks like it's definitely coming from the 3rd member.

    Warranty time. Your blocks shouldn't be an issue.

    Lift should have zero effect on that leaking

    So I took my truck, got a call back and they asked me if I had someone work on the truck because all the bolts are loose. Obviously no one has worked on my truck. So I asked if they had little kids working at their plants tightening the bolts! Lol

    I had a small hunch that may have been the issue
