95% sure you built it wrong, or a 5% chance you have a defective diff... but i've never seen a defect to be honest.

you probably need to re build it, clean it all up, and re do it dude, diffs don't leak normally unless you overfilled it.

make sure you onyl fill up to where the two cross members of the gears intersect.

Could also be one of the o'rings around the out drives. If they go hard they can also leak.

Dude (as TomB says), you dont need a front diff. Just a oneway or a locker is all you need. The RRR doesnt come with a front diff either.
