Austin, is the factory seal a single lipped one and, perhaps, a replacement is double-lipped? (My research on vacuum pump seals turns up a story such as this.)

 

DO said that the T-case fluid level was down about 1/2, in which case this would have to be a pretty significant leak.  Records (see my above links) show that the shop mentioned that (with 157k on the clock) the two front U-joints needed to be replaced.  Could any of this be indicative of a more extensive issue with the T-case?  Am I barking up the wrong trees here? (never spent any time working on 4wd drivetrain bits)

Heres a good kit for the vacuum pump. I bought the one with the replacement vanes but it wasnt really necessary to replace them. Lot of good parts on this website, you can trust that theyll be quality.

I am not sure but it is possible.

That is cool, I didn't know he was in WA. He also has a amazon page in case anyone is interested in ordering from him via Amazon. I just ordered this kit from his Amazon page myself.
