My car has 180000 miles.

It is possible that the seals may have been installed backwards. If these seals are installed backwards it can damage the seal and cause a leak. I would recommend retracing your steps to determine if the seals were installed backwards. If the seals were installed backwards I would recommend purchasing new ones and performing the repair again. If you are unsure about this repair I would recommend enlisting in the assistance of a qualified professional.
