When you replaced the old seals, did you notice any wear or grooves in the shafts? If so, then that is most likely your problem. The wear/grooves aren't allowing the seals to seal properly. Alternatively, pick up some UV dye from your local auto parts store and put it in the tranny fluid. Then clean up the leak with some brake cleaner and drive the car around for 100-200 miles. Then whip out a black light and start hunting for the glowing spots. Good luck...
