Had the clutch replaced on my F150 a couple months ago. Since then the rear seal has started to leak. Not surprising as the truck is close to 200K. My question (now with hindsight) is, shouldn't the rear seal have been replaced at the same time on a vehicle with that mileage?

Also, any rough ideas on the cost of that task?

Yes*, and no idea.

Was it leaking before the clutch work?

Cost...dunno, but in this HMW thread .... 99 Camero = $1500
