Dana 60 Front Axle

My son has a '99 2500 with a Dana 60 front axle. We replaced the drivers side hub assembly over the weekend. Tuesday night I noticed gear oil leaking out of the axle. We didn't notice a seal on the stub shaft. Is there a seal somewhere that we missed?

Yeah it happened to me also but at the drive shaft. I put some royal purple in there to keep it full and it has not leaked. i know that it is not supposed to do that but maybe i got lucky.

The seal is inside the axle tube, and is replaced from the inside.
