Default Axel leaking

Hey guys my driver side axel is leaking a little. Only when driving. I just did the diff mounts in my car and I also replaced the seals. The pass side is fine. My first guess was to try and take it out of the diff and reseat the axel. Also I thought I might of put to much oil in and that is why. But I am not sure I would be so lucky lol. So if you have any ideas to why it might be leaking let me know. Thanks

Open your fill plug and let it drain out first. If it still leaks, you screwed up on the new seal.
