92 caravan 3.3 transmission

a few years ago and around 50,000 miles ago i had my tranny rebuilt and after everything was fine for 50,000 miles lol but now i had a problem the high gear broke so they dropped the tranny and just changed the 2 parts which broke. the problem is since i got the car back the problem i have transmission fluid leaking from the axle seal i believe the area where the axle slides into under the vehicle there is a little lip with a gap i hope someone knows what i am talking about. i had this same problem last time i got the transmission rebuilt and i got stuck replacing the axle because i believe he told me it was not smooth or it was pitted after the axle still had a small leak brought it back and he changed the axle seal again and has been fine ever since. i just brought it back to the guy who fixed the high gear he pulled the axle replaced axle seal he told me if i still have a leak i will have to change the axle he told me the axle i have is not smooth and thats what may be causing it. guess what i got the car back and still have a small leak. I really don't feel like paying someone to change the axle again. should i leave it alone i don't think it is a large leak after i shut the car off i only see about 2 or 3 drops on the floor i don't know if it is leaking when i am driving. Is it hard to change the axle is this something i can do myself?

Is it leaking from the TRANSaxle or the halfshaft seal?
