CHEVY REAR AXLE LEAK

1996 Chevrolet Suburban

Drive Train Axles Bearings problem
1996 Chevy Suburban V8 Four Wheel Drive Automatic 313000 miles

The drivers side rear axle seal leaks. I have had it replaced 3 times (along with the ruined brakes) and have also replaced the axle. It still leaks. The axle housing has a small imperfection near the seal (like someone slipped removing the seal or maybe it happened when my emergency brake exploded on that side). What are my options. Another axle, seal, or do I find a rear end without the chink? What else could be causing this to occur?
