anyone have any thoughts on why my trans would drip a few drops ONLY when carrying a load? Not even a HEAVY load. like 4 bales of hay at 400 lbs.  took hay out and no drip. HUMMMMMMMMMM

Rear transmission seal is going bad, a heavier than normal load puts more pressure on the tranny and forces the fluid through seal, it is simple to replace and inexpensive.

Pretty simple remove the drive shaft flat blade screw driver or chisel and a hammer to remove the seal and then tap the new one in place.
