do you mean on the outside of the brake drum? Checked your oil level recently? Could be a pinion seal leaking and throwing oil all over the place when driving. ???

Sounds like a seal to me. Might as well do the bearing too.

I would drain the rear axle also to make sure you dont have a bunch of water that is helping push the oil out of the seals. You will have to pull the axle cover anyway to get at the c clip to pull out ther axle to change the seal. Just remember to push the axle in some before trying to remove the clip. (I did'nt do that the first time I pulled a rear axle and spent a frustrating hour before I called someone) Also remember when you put the clip back in pull on the axle some to make the clip seats properly. :beer:
