Default Transmission leak

Is anyone else experiencing this in there truck? I have a small leak from the front of the bell housing right above the sway bar. If so what is the fix and how much and I looking at? If it helps it also shifts hard from 2-1. Also why they have the tranny leak should I go ahead and regear the rear diff to 4.10 or 4.56 gears. I have a 5.4 with the 9.75 rear end with the stock 3.55 gears while rolling on 35" trail grapplers. What opinions do y'all have?

I had it on my truck within the first 10,000 miles. Tool it to the dealership and there was a TSB to fix it. Took about a day and a half to get it back.

2wd or 4wd? If four then you need to replace front and rears diff gears.

I was leaking at the bulk head connector on mine. TSB 11-3-25. Had it fixed at the dealership about 4 months ago. Took them about an hour and a half.
