Default sye kit and rear seal wont stop leaking

Co-oworker had a rugged ridge sye kit w/ driveshaft installed in his wrangler. Rear output seal leaked right away. Not bad but leaves drops on the ground. I did not install it. He ordered a new seal that I installed and it did exactly the same thing. He talked with whom he ordered it through and they sent a new seal and yoke. I installed the new seal and yoke and it was good for a day and started to leak again. This time its not leaking as bad as previous leaks. Checked the vent to be sure it worked, not overfilled, not leaking from yoke splines. The vendor is kinda jerking him around now. Any ideas on what is causing and possible ideas to fix?

I assume with the new output housing it got a new bronze bushing. Kit came with driveshaft, and he doesn't seem to have any vibration issues.

Crossed that national number to timken and precision. The precision seal looked no different then the seal that came with the kit. The timken seal was different and fit good. Hopefully this helps take care of his problem.
