Rear brakes soaked in grease/oil ?

hwllo,


i have a 2000 E-350 w/ thr 5.4L. It's a standard setup in the rear and i noticed a few weeks ago that my brakes were soaked in a dark greasy paste. i thought it was bearing grease but upon dissasembly i found no grease there. so i got new bearings as they were shot and put everything back together, including a diff fluid service.

initially, i thought maybe it's a seal that failed and allowed differential fluid to mix in with the grease but i found no grease so now i'm wondering ... Is the hub supposed to be packed with grease, or is it a regular sealed hub??

if it's sealed where did that oil come from?(it wasnt brake fluid)

thanks.

You fixed it with what you did. The differential fluid mixes with the caked on dirt and gives the impression of grease. Was the axle okay?
