Questions: Do I have to cut the rubber seal to install? And, does the bevel face towards the wheel?
Question By: Carmen on Jan 26 2017 5:53 PM
Yes, to install just cut the all rubber part of the seal. Put the slick in the center up position and wrap around the axle tube. The fill level is not that high. Do the same with the felt seal position wise. Put plates on - do not over torque. Make sure to grease knuckle ball and remove any hi spots.

We usually use 90 weight gear oil in the knuckles. Dont use synthetic. It tends to leak.

Questions: So, starting from the differential side, it ends up with the metal bands with lip out, then the rubber seal with the metal side out, and then the felt seal. Correct?

The felt seal goes in the middle.
