I need to replace the seals at the outer ends of the rear axel because the brake shoes are getting grease on them . Could someone give me the numbers of name brand seals so I can go to the local parts store to get/ order them . Trying to get one of the GIRLS working there to look for them is impossible . They have no idea what you need and don't care if you get them or not .

Which Dana rear axle do you have?
If it's a Dana 70, the seal should be CENTRIC 41758002

FC-170 parts book: Inner seal 644254; outer 914802. Sometimes the problem is people finding that grease zerk, not knowing what it does, and pumping it full of grease anyway. The excess grease can escape into the drum/shoes.

Thanks Guys . I see some numbers on the outer edge on the rear . Do these tell me anything ? On mine , it looks like it is a patent number . I tried to contact Kaiser Willys but they were taking inventory . I will try again today .
