Wheel Bearing Upgrades

Have been noticing some squealing while driving around for the past few weeks, and then noticed one of the back hubs leaking. Now I know my rear axle where swapped for a disco with disc brake conversion and not a hundred percent sure on the front yet, but is there any recommended upgrades I should consider while I'm getting involved replacing the bearings?

With the rear squealing, you may need to replace the axle spindle end too.
Your Disco1 axle will have 2 seals on each axle end, a small one (inner) and a larger exterior one. The larger one is available in a double lip version, that's the one to replace it with.
The small one is to keep the diff oil out of the bearings and the large one is to keep the bearing grease in the hub.
Some guys only run the outer seal (large Dbl. lip) and allow the diff oil to lube the bearings in the hub (2 sets of bearings).
