Maybe, though you may only need the flange gasket. Best way to make sure is pull the wheel and look more closely to see where it's coming from.

thanks., Since the kit is only 8 bucks I might as well order it. So I have to remove the wheel to do it?

Oh sorry this is for the front. The front passenger side. I do need the center cap for the one rear wheel though. Is this the same front and rear?

I'd double check before you order, a drum Sals rear may have a different seal.

I second that. use permatex.... just clean everything nice first.

You should definitely get ahold of a Workshop Service Manual.
