Gasket sealants

Well I ordered all the parts, seals, gaskets etc,, to rebuild the stub axle (spindle), CV Joint, Swivel housing etc.
The shop manual doesn't talk about gasket sealants, so I was wondering if anyone recommended using sealants for
the gaskets in the axle to swivel Housing, or stub axle to housing, or flanges?.

Just some brush or spray on adhesive stuff, I prefer the spray tack, since it goes on smoother and more even.

grease it up baby...I like the grease. It is easier to reuse the seal if you have to do field repairs.

Thats good to know, never heard of that before.. I guess bearing grease is cool? waiting for seal kits, gaskets etc.. Sv housing and Cv are rebuilt, rotor/hub cleaned out, new bearings, just waiting fo the stub hub /spindle , and sv gaskets. frustrated because I had to go source parts from three suppiers to get everything, and I would have been done already. Now I have to wait until Wed. &^%$! Having fun though, and got a couple more hairs (greying) on my chest for trail repairs..

yep bearing grease is fine to coat the paper gaskets with, it also helps hold them in place whilst you reassemble everything too
