hey guys,
last weekend I replaced all 4 ball-joints. couple days ago I checked my radiator level and I noticed that it was pretty low. Yesterday I checked my ball-joints and I see some kind of oil coming out the front axel housing. when I look closer it looks like green oil stuff. I'm very confuse because two things are green by color :fuel and radiator water. they both not connected to the axel so what is going on ?

thanks a lot

What does it smell like? In the right light new gear oil can look green. Can also be a coolant leak that is running down your axle.

When you did the ball joints, you would have had the axle shafts out. The passenger/right side shaft is the longer one and when reinstalling the shaft, it is very easy to knock the spring off the inner carrier seal. The only way to fix it, is to pull everything apart again, including the carrier, then replace the seal (or both).
