nakman, thanks for the link...very helpful. I had grey soup in my front diff so I want to cover all bases with the rebuild. Plus I have some slight scoring inside the spindle shaft...that can't be good.
DanS, my timing always blows. I have not priced one of these SST but I may have to consider buying one. I guess I could wait a month if the price is $$$. Thanks for the offer.
Another related question, both my axles have a very slight groove at the inner seal location. Is the rule of thumb to have a perfectly smooth shaft at this location or your just waiting your time? I'm using Marlin seals.
