Angry Lingenfelter differential blowing oil...

I bought an LPE 9.5" differential not too long ago and have noticed a ton of gear oil blowing out the vent tube. Anyone with this differential notice this?

It's frustrating to spend $5K for a differential only to have it blowing oil all over. :(

No. I called LPE about it a few weeks ago and they said it's an issue they're aware of and would be sending a fix. I've heard nothing since.

I was hoping someone else had and resolved this problem.

Did you ever get the fix done? Diff is holding up great and oil vent is no longer an issue. Plus it definitely lets it vent great with no possible oil issues as I've heard on other diff setups. Just took a little time to get a well engineered solution.
