Question Help Identify and oil leak !!!

I have this small oik leak, right where the transfer case connect to the driveshaft ( the joke I think), is very small there allways signs of a drop on it but the floor where I park my T all the time has no marks and sometimes my T is park for 5-7 days w/out being move...
I check around the transfer case and the seal around driveshaft and there is no sign of oil leaking from there, the oil stain or drops are on the brakeline that runs next to the driveshaft.. Hope you gys can understand me I already got lost lol explaining this.... Thanks
here are some pictures to help :













thanks

It looks like the yoke is leaking out of the plug.

When you lift a truck the yoke is pulled out more from the transmission/transfer case. This is due to the increased distance from the transmission to the rear end. This is not a good thing.
If you look at the photos you can see a dark ring around the yoke where the seal used to ride, before the lift.

So, do you think that by installing that it would solve the leaking problem? I have the same problem and was wondering how to fix it if the leak is coming from there. Would we have to replace the seal and if so is that a easy/cheap thing to do or what? Thanks

When the yoke is pulled out too much with a lift, the contact between the yoke and the splines on the transmission shaft is made less. This could cause the yoke to try to move around more in the bushing in the transmission, and this could increase the possibility of leaks. Also, when the drive shaft is at a larger angle to the center line of the transmission, which happens with a lift, this causes more side thrust on the yoke as it rotates. This leads to more wear on the tail shaft bushing, and increases the possibility of a seal leak.
By installing the spacer, the yoke is moved back into the transmission, increasing contact area with the tail shaft, which makes the yoke more stable on the shaft. You still have the problem with the increased drive shaft angle, but having the yoke back in the correct position is a big plus.

Cool, thanks for the reply. Guess I will order one of those also. I just ordered my trans mount, getting ready to the axle vent mod and now this, lol.
