Default Axle Questions

Ok, so I just had my rear rebulit in the car. Orginally it had regular wheel bearings and seals that did not leak but had alot of play up and down with the axle, leading to be suspicious that the axle is worn down in that spot. I then had axle repair bearings that have a seal bulit in and ride on a different part of the axle and that eliminated the play in the axle but now there is a slow leak out the wheel bearings. Right now I know the diff is overfilled because it is coming out of the breather, or at least I suspect its overfilled and the breather is disposing of the overflow, or its broken. Anywho, My question is, should I replace the outer wheel bearings with regular ones again and just deal with the play or should I keep the repair bearings in there or so I just say the hell with everything and put some new axles in with new bearings so i know that everything is okie dokie?
If you go with the last option, give me some options, I don't plan on making a huge amount of power anytime soon, so no upgraded differential, I just had the stock one rebulit. Any suggestions on some 28 spline axles that are not too costly?
