Rear Trans Seal Leak

most likely the seal will need to be replaced again though i would imagine.
since you only did it once and it's an easy enough job, i would think doing it again with particular care is your best option.
get a Subaru seal only, avoid the parts stores seals, i've had Fel-Pro's aftermarket seals leak.
clean up everything really good. grease and oil the seal properly. make sure the driveshaft end that slides through the seal isn't rusted, pitted or in bad shape.
make certain the seal is installed slowly and flush the entire time. be sure to install it to the proper depth as well. maybe since the old one plopped right out, you really didn't know how far to seat it?
