Recently did both hub's during which I thought I F*cked up my driver side CV shaft by pulling on it too much but I decided to put everything back together and try and its fine..

Before doing my hubs when turning left and being around 3krpms or higher it felt like the trans went into neutral and it would rev then catch and the car would "jolt" a little.. Well now that is gone after doing my hub's + strut assembly...weird

So I thought out of the random I should check my trans fluid. I followed the How-To and well nothing came out of the check plug so I added some. nothing. Added more. Nothing. Ended with adding half a gallon! Then I check and There is a puddle the size of a quarter coming out of my driver side CV shaft...

WTF is going on? lol

You mean it's coming out of the side of the trans around the axle shaft? Probably needs a new axle seal.
