Default trans output shaft seal leaking

I just replace the half shaft on a 2000 montana, sorry for bring this into the bonny forum, but I only get good answers here. The output shaft seal leaks bad after replacing, so I have replaced 2 more seals and it still leaks. I have measure the shaft and they are the same from old one to new one. I have never had any problems like this with replacing half shafts. It really leaks bad in reverse and on a sharp turn. IT is the drivers side. I have had it apart 4 time now... Any help would be grealty appreciated.

Thanks mike

I'm wondering if the carrier bearing between the two shafts is bad and the wobble is destroying your seal ?

carrier bearing would be the other option, but you should be able to feel that while accelerating. do you have the part#'* for the cv & seal you have been putting in there. I can cross reference them at work to be sure your getting the right part where ever your buying them from.

and what is the production date exactly, should be on sticker in door panel
