Just got done with mine.

Noticed the new hub seemed a little out of round? Looked like they balanced it?

E Brakes aren't in, have to pull it apart next month anyway

Can't find the spindle nut socket at any of the auto parts stores.Can I tighten it down with needle nose pliers and then use a punch to get in on tight?

looks like no posts on here for a while but I wanted to share about my stupidity. I replaced the left rear seal at 82500 miles. I now am at 127500. since then I have had to replace that same seal at least six more times. I've changed the bearings and races, and the complete hub as well. Finally today I figured it out by rereading this thread. Part of the original seal was still on the spindle. Someone wrote that it looks like it should be there. Well it don't. all this time it looked as if the spindle needed that little extra raised part. Don't be a dummy get the entire old seal off there!
