It's not uncommon. Very sticky and smelly stuff.

I'm sure you'll have to leave for the day. They probably get an hour or two.

Just had mine replaced under warranty. I have never owned a GM truck/SUV that didn't have leaking rear seals... Seems like these always leak (for me).

My 01 had the rear oil seals replaced. twice on the right and once on the left, all below 10k miles. Then no more trouble.
