    Morning all. Went over my car last night for the first time and something I noticed was that there is a slight misting of oil where the drive shafts exit the rear diff, both sides. My question is is this normal or does it look like the seals are on their way out?

    Not normal should just be a dirty look, like there is elsewhere
