Solution for 8.8 spewing diff fluid

Ever since the install of the 8.8 I've had issues with diff fluid spewing all underneath the rear of my car.  I had Erik change out my gears a year ago and I finally got around to changing the fluid for the first time.  When I drained the fluid there was about  1 quart that came out.  It should hold 1.8 quarts, so after about 3000 miles I lost almost a quart of fluid.  I looked around on the internet and found a possible solution.  I used an inline fuel filter and installed  it backwards on the end of the vent hose.  I cut about half the hose off so the filter would be sitting vertical and any fluid that is trapped in the filter can drain back into the housing.  I just put this on not to long ago, so we'll see how it works.  I know some people use a catch can, but this will be much better if it works.
