Shaft Drive question

Looks like some seepage? From shaft drive assembly to rim. Is this normal? Something I can check?

It's likely grease from the large spline that connects the final drive to the wheel.
They all do that.
Just keep it cleaned up by wiping it off.
The geared section of the final drive is sealed from that area and that grease is amber colored.

right, someone over greased the splines from the rear bevel to the wheel.

as said, just keep cleaning it off, eventually the excess will stop comming out
