I changed the axel seals on my 06 lbz and the new ones leaked worse than the old ones. I took the hubs back off and noticed a piece of the old seal was still on the spindle. So i removed the metal part of the old seal that looks kind of like a sleeve and is hard to see. replaced everything and i believe it fixed it. Drove it 30 miles and no leaks. Also, the complete hub assy. went on easier. I guess when i torqed the hub on the first time, the seal pushed the old part of the seal all the way to the back plate, which made it hard to remove. Anyone else have this problem?
