Default Vent bellow

I have synthetic gear lube in my rear axle and it keep coming out of my vent line
Idk if it because I moved the vent line to the pig (same location as the front axle)
But I was thinking of switching to a bellow
I was just wondering if anyone has run them and had any issues
Thanks

I have used them a lot in a porduct I designed, we found under high heat they can expand to much and not get there shape back. That was really the only thing we found. there are diffrent material types for diffrent temp ranges but they are not easily available locally, we went to a manufacture to get them. You also have to make sure you have the right sized one so that they can expand enough or they pop.

Well it would be on a waggy dana 44 rear
Most of the ones I see for sale on the full size 4x4 sites look about the same size
I was looking at this https://liquidironindustries.com/-VB...er-System.html

I think your OK or at least worth the try. I think you will be fine going with a normally used one. Your not doing anything special. Just check your fluid level sense you having troubles already.

It doesn't leak a lot of fluid but then again it doesn't take much fluid to make a mess
