after new front seal i have noise in left front -like a crunchy sound

I had my transmission overhauled about 1 year ago-had a small leak ever since-slowly got worse and last week i had the front seal replaced (after i tried the pan gasket 1st)now there is a weird noise in the left front -sound like around the left front rear near the firewall if i had to guess-almost sounds like a bad shock but not, because it is not dependent upon a bump or rough road to make the sound-what are the guesses as to what it could be?
I would like some suggestions before i take it back.
Thanks,
Jan

"Crunchy Sound"................... Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.....................

If it makes a "Rattle" over small bumps or imperfections in the road, then it sounds like a link pin. If it was removed to replace the axle seal (should not have) then it is probably the culprit.

When does the sound happen? high speed, low speed, curves, slow turns, or all the time, but changes pitch with turning or speed?

Hi
Happens at mostly low speeds-bumps don't seem to make any difference-could it be something that that didn't tighten properly? as it seems like a rattle sound but doesn't seem to increase with a rough road.
Thanks,
Jan

thanks,
I'll have that checked-did it have anything to do with removing the tranny?

Probably just worn with age. They are made of plastic.
