It is possible that the seal is defective, have seen that before comes right back still leaking. Also it could have been installed wrong or might have gotten nicked when the half shaft was going back in and that would cause it to leak again. I would recommend taking it back to where you got it fixed and having them look at it again, it should be warranty depending on how long ago you had it replaced and if it is their fault they should fix it for free.

Front wheel drive

Who changed the seal? If you paid for this big job, naturally, return it. Are you sure it was leaking at the seal? Cracked trans body, out of round trans shaft? look into if it has 2 seals on it also, 1 a rope seal covered by a rubber seal (a seal kit) good luck)

Have you gotten under & checked the driveaxle seals?

The big leak will be the torque converter pump seal

Sort of old to do that & not rebuild the trans while your at it

I have a loud grinding noise coming from the front drivers side and I noticed that the transmission has been keaking oil on the drivers side of the trans. Could the seal make that much noise and do seals...

Seals don't make noises, they are just neoprene discs with a spring to seal to a rotating shaft.

It is more likely to be a bearing. It could also be the constant velocity joint between the transmission and the wheel. As you have an oil leak, it is the bearing and the seal in the transmission housing.

Put in transmission in feburary.

you will still need add the proper type fluid to proper fill level, get under the truck, clean up transmission so you can visually monitor where the leak is coming from. Chock the wheels, emergency brake set, start and idle vehicle check for leaks. If trans is leaking it will probably be a front seal (oil will drip from small hole in the bottom of bell housing), pan gasket, loose cooling line to radiator, or rear tail shaft leak ( where drive shaft enters the trans.) Don't forget to check the lines for pin holes and the radiator for leaks.

Oil leaking from rear main seal, how hard is this to change. And whats the going rate for a shop to do the repair.

Replacing the rear main seal is kind of a long one. It involves seperating the motor and trans. Depending if it is manual or auto,would weather you have to remove the flex plate (auto trans) or fly wheel (manual trans). Then of course there is removing the old seal, making sure it is free of burrs and putting the new one in, and reassembly.
