aftermarket inner seals aren't really designed to fit a stock axle tube, however, you might get lucky. to check it you will need to remove your 3rd member and measure the ID of the tube. factory tubes aren't DOM tubing and there is a welded seam that you will need to grind off as well. i'm not certain, but i don't believe any of the aftermarket seals will fit a stock axle tube. good luck.

poor mans solution, take a piece of roll bar badding and put it in the right side axle tube. It will keep most of oil in center section but still allow some to wheel bearing if not the sealed type.

there was a post on here a while back about the roll bar padding.. and pretty much everybody agreed it did not work... when I tried it all I found were small peices a few weeks later... What I do is take a piece of sheet metal the width of the axel tube drill a hole in the center for the axel to fit thru and a few small return holes on bottom and weld it into the housing... all this does is make the hole leading into the axel tube smaller. Hope you understand what I am saying...
