Hey, Metrompg. If you can find them, try some of the old Potenza RE 910's. They were pretty good on my old escort EV, but were discontinued a while back.

The leak is either axle seals (pretty easy) or the input seal (requires removing the motor to get to). My old Fiero EV had the "upgraded" axle seals with extra carrier bearings on them and still leaked like a sieve - through the input shaft seal. Didn't find that out til I sold it!

Wipe the bottom clean with solvent then let it sit a bit, then wipe the seam with apaper towel and see if you get any oil there. If not, try around the axle openings. That will tell you where the problem is.
