where's it leaking from? You didn't get the boots on tight enough if they're leaking. Turn them so the split faces backwards on the axle (screws running vertically), and make sure the clamps are nice and tight.

If you're leakin form teh drums, then you didn't get the seal kit on correctly or damaged i when you put it in. Tear it out and start over.

Good luck! Smile
