c-clip eliminators leaking

Having a problem with a leaking c clip eliminator. Had a new seal pressed in last year but I noticed its leaking again. I took the axle back to the machine shop yesterday to have another seal installed. Any tips on how to seal these? I bought some red, high temp RTV to try this time. They are Moser axles and a Chevy 12 bolt rear end that were already installed when I bought the car.

No first hand experience on this one myself, but "I've heard" that many/most c-clip eliminator kits aren't recommended for street use. Perhaps this is the reason?

It does indeed seem that the C-clip eliminator kits are more for track use and not street use as they can leak. Read this blog. You may find a few ideas or a few things to check that might be of help. C Clip eliminators or not? [Archive] - Chevelle Tech
