HD half shafts and stub tolerances

Couple questions on HD shafts:

The HD axles like GBR and Rovertracks are thicker than OEM, correct?

Do these HD axles then simply slide into the stub??

Do the tolerances allow that?? Does this cause any problems with letting oil flow around??

Do you need special seals to accommodate for the increased size??

Same size just much better materials. They slide right in,nothing else required.

To get to the point, if you have broken axles or worried about breaking your stock components, by a set of either, install, and forget. As Kevin says, same dimensions, just better materials. Just pull stock, install HD, easy. I'm partial to Rovertracks. Keith is good people and his stuff doesn't break.
