Yep, most likely a bad seal between the upper and lower. Its a piece of cake to put in new seals. 6 nuts on the top and a bolt under the lower zinc and its apart. Just drain the lube first.

I never touched a drive till about a month ago. I installed a larger spacer between the upper and lower. It took me about 2 hrs start to finish and 20 mins of that was letting the lube drain out.

When you say you just had the drives done 10 hrs. ago, do you mean they were gone through. If so, I would be placing a phone call to my mechanic and have it gone through again and done right. Either they didn't replace the seal or they did it incorrectly.

just had my lower done 1 week ago - same thing, oil coming out of water intake after sitting for awhile, it's the little orange seal for the oil passage between upper & lower (mine was missing) sound like the same problem EZ fix.
