My AOD has been brought down 3 times in the last 5 years, last time was last year when i paid to have it rebuilt and put in a new servo kit. I remember the leak stopped after this but then it came back several weeks later. The old springs were in such bad shape every time i drove over a pothole or bump my car's rear would come down so hard it would shook the vehicle badly. For a long time i pondered what could've dented my gas tank 2 years ago and i came to a conclusion the vehicle must've come down real hard on a bump and this is what caused the dent. It's very likely worn out springs and the installation of the new springs aggravated the situation even further. One thing is for sure the driveshaft is shorter by 2" or so. The car is great with the new springs and i have been more than happy at how it feels on the road. Best course of action will be to take the driveshaft to a shop and make it longer if it can't happen then buy a new one.
