Where to Buy Axle Seals
 
At 111k miles, I have a leaking rear passenger axle seal. :mad:

Since I was already going to do the rear brakes soon, this shouldn't be that much extra work (I don't think). I found on the site below where I can buy a kit w/ the seal, retainer plate, bearing, and collar for $55. I was wondering where everyone recommends I buy a new seal? I don't really care about replacing the retaining plate, but I do need a new seal, collar, and bearing. Can I get those anywhere for much cheaper than $50?

Surely someone has done this and has a place to recommend?

Sorry, never had to do this (sofar).
Did you try on Rockauto.com?

You have a cut off wheel and press to do this right?

From what I can tell, yeah you have to cut the old bearing off and press the new one on. I talked to my local shop and they said they if I bring in the axles (I'm going to do both sides) they would press off the old bearings/seal and press on the new ones for $30 total.

Sweet deal... They won't press off though there is no way to get anything in there to press them off, you were right with the cut them off comment.
