Seal at axle tube/swivel ball

I remember some time back seeing a thread about running with/without the oil seal that seperates the swivel ball from the diff.

When I broke a stub axle recently it shredded the end of the axle spindle making it impossible to remove the hub nuts so I could make a trail repair. I was forced to drive back to the trailhead with lots of metal grinding around in the CV, wheel bearings etc.

The oil seal kept the metal out of the ARB. $$$

You know I have thought the same thing a couple of times Randy. Around here mud finds it's way into the wheel bearings all the time, it's no big deal to change out wheel bearings but I would hate to have to change the diff bearings or the inner bearing on the CV eerytime the bearings got muddy., or worse like you said to do damage to the diff itself.

Ive read a lot about this FTC3511, is this only in the front stub or in the rear stub also? This is seriously becoming a tad bit frustrating.

Are you thinking of the RTC3511 double lip hub seal?

I'm not sure what seal you're talking about then. FTC3511 is a housing. RTC3511 is a hub seal for D90's, RRC, D1's....

RTC3511 hub seal, use it on the front and the rear, be sure to put a little grease on the lips before installing the hub.

The inner hub seal will work on both the HD and stock axles. The raised part of the axle is what the seal rides on. I have always installed new ones even though the fronts are a pain to get to. I have heard of guys running with out them but you point makes sense. I guess that is one reason why Rover does it that way.
