Guys I put my lift on yesterday and when I was try to put the bottom two strut bolts in I was having a hard time getting them in until I noticed the axle had come out at the differential. I put it back in but now I have a leak there. Is this just a normal seal that I possible damaged? I hope so.

I pulled the wheel and unhooked the bottom of the strut where I could pull cv axle out however before I did unhook the strut. I noticed that the shaft would move in and out about 1/4" On the differential side. Is this normal?
I couldn't compare it to the driver side because its different. It did look like I seen a seal in the differential when I pulled the cv shaft back. What do you all think?

You probably just damaged the seal. I would guess that this is the shaft on the (US) passenger side? if so then its worth getting the nylon bush that Suzuki added to the later models to help support that shaft. Bits4Vits sell it but you should be able to order it through a Suzuki dealer.
Yeah rhinoman pass side. I was hoping it just had a seal there. I wasn't sure about being able to move the shaft back and forward in the differential. It moves about 1/4". Is this normal?

It does only have a seal as standard but the support bush reduces wear considerably if you use 4x4 a lot. I would pull the shaft out and check that the circlip hasn't been displaced.
