Where can i get a seal for where the drive shaft fits into the transmission?

(2001 Ford F-150)
in Statham, GA on December 06, 2011
I have replaced the drive shaft but now I'm leaking fluid where it inserted into the transmission. I bought the drive shaft at a salvage yard and didnt have a good experience. would I be able to get that sort of thing at autozone or advance or something like that?

You most likelly need a Transmission tail shaft seal but you have to check the drive shaft too(the part that slides into the transmission) it has to be clean and shinie before installation. You can buy the seal any of the known parts store for a few $.

Also inregards to the drive shaft. The shinny end of the drive shaft ( the slip yoke/ or fixed ) that slides into the transmission tail housing, check it for run out. If there are worn groves in it your going to have a sealing issue. Run your finger along the shinny part and see ifts bowed or hour glassed.
