hypoid is contaminated by grease

Every time I change the hypoid gear oil from the front differential, I found that the hypoid is contaminated by grease, I guess that grease is from swivel housing. My question is: That problem should be solved at once or it can be delayed for more convenient time?

My 82 has the inner seals like yours. Built in Feb '82 I am told, first registered in March '82.

...And yes, it is a poor design!!

However, the good part of owning an early G is non-staked-in U-joints[:)].
