Rear axle

Guys the groove would have to be pretty bad for a new seal to leak. We just polish the axle where the seal goes and never have a problem with the axle seals or pinion seals. The shim idea, a double lipped seal or a seal of a different width will work. You should be able to get the seal in 8 9 or 10 mm width. Not to say we donít use the sleeves but never on a 105... not yet anyway. Let us know how the sleeves go.
