Right, just be sure and check for metal on each service (and if it the rear drive should be sounding odd) and you should be able to catch it before any failure.
I got lucky and had a seal on the rear drive unit of my 02 start leaking while still under warranty. The great service manager at the dealership said something like "Oh look, there's metal bits in the oil (nod, nod, wink, wink), do you want that rear bearing changed out under warranty too? To which I replied, why yes sir, please do!
If your worried about it but it's still holding up well, maybe you can hold out till something like a seal gives you a reason to remove the drive.

If it rolls, floats, flies or shoots, runs on gasoline or gunpowder, is loud, goes fast, or shoots a big bullet, thus producing Torque or Recoil....It's Cool.
