Re: 8.25 outer axle seals

I'll say the dreaded words: Your local dealer.
I've tried the aftermarket stuff including Napa, and they all suck. OEM has always worked with my 8.25, although the Quadratec seals you linked look better than the junk I mentioned.

Re: 8.25 outer axle seals

I picked up the pinion yoke seal at napa over the summer put it in myself with minimal tools, had to use the car jack on the wrench to create enough pressure to get the nut off, but I have logged nearly 20,000 miles on it since the install and it has not leaked a drop.

Re: 8.25 outer axle seals

Just got back from vatozone.They had timken brand seals in stock for $4.49 a piece.They're made in taiwan...hopefully they're not total junk.

I'll be installing these this weekend so if someone wants to talk me out of installing taiwan seals feel free to do so....
