    Clean 'em up real good near the backing plate and search real close with a good light. See if there isn't a tiny 'vent' hole drilled in the axle tube. Might be almost invisible filled with crud.

    I dimly recall doing that once, although maybe it was the Timken clamshell axle in my Jeep truck.

    Thanks I'll check it out. I tore the rear axle all down and didn't see it, but if its tiny I could have missed it easily.
