Anybody know the part number for the outer seal for these rearends, and where I can get 'em? These seals mount on the outside of the hub nut. I bought the inner hub seals and both o-rings from JR, but noticed the passenger side had a small outer seal when I tore it down, but the driver's side did'nt, and it's the side that leaks. I looked back in the JR catalog and it does'nt show this seal. Also, anybody notice how thick the new drive plate 0-ring is compared to the old one? Now my drive plates don't line up flush with the hubs like they used to. I'm afraid when I mount the wheels the clamping torque will distort the o-rings and start leaking there. Should I put the old drive plate o-rings back in?

Look at stock car products #50395 and see if that's the seal you need.
