I grabbed some new front wheel bearings from the local bearing supplier yesterday which came in a kit form. Timken outer and NSK inner. It came with 2 bearing seals and I'm assuming I don't need the smaller (outer?) one. What is it for?



Here is the new inner seal which I am assuming gets installed with the rubber lip facing away from the hub and toward the stab axle;





and the old seal which looks to be a better seal IMO?

I can't make out bugger all from those pics. Could you put up a pic of the 2 seals together? Maybe in natural light outside.

They both look different to the ones that come with the terrain tamer kit I picked up.

From memory (which is failing day upon day) the terrain tamer seals had metal rings with multi lipped rubber seals on both sides.

But hat was a full front end kit diffs hubs and all

Thats what the seal I pulled out looked like. Seemed a better design than this one. Good thing is this one will come out easier when I next repack the bearings.

The small one looks like the seal on the other side of the stub axle, like so..
