Default Front Strut Question/Problem

I am replacing the front struts on my 2002 Santa Fe 4x4. I replaced passenger side without an issue. My issue occurred on the driver side when I separated the knuckle from the strut. The axle shaft pulled away from the transfer case and I quickly had a nice puddle of tranny fluid on the floor.

Is this simply a matter of pushing the axle back into position and refilling the transaxle or have I wrecked a seal or something?

Any thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks.
