Axle seal/Wheel seal???

Finishing up diff repair and need to replace my axle shaft o-rings which are right behind the axle shaft flange, and the so called wheel seals which when bad cause fluid to leak out of the back of the brake drum and sling on the inside wall of the tire. No luck with the o-rings anywhere so far. Might have some luck on quad4x4.com for the o-rings. As for the other seal, is it called a wheel seal? The axle seal is technically the o-ring. I purchased rear wheel seals today. They were friggin 40 bucks each. Very large seals that must weigh a pound or two each. Does this sound like the right seal? 4-5inch or so in dia. seal. Reason i made this thread is because every parts store and the dealer seem to be confused on this and when doing a search there seem to be some other people confused about this.

AXLE seal is the large 4-5" diameter seal you bought and yes they are Expensive.

As for the O ring, call ford or go to a heavy equipment dealer and they will have a Large o-ring kit you can match up

yes, as brad said the axle seals are correct. in a pinch you can use rtv for the o-ring, but brad has the best advice there as well. also when you bought or in the future bu axle seals again make sure you get the two piece that rotates within the seal and no on the axle spindle (it will be the more expensive version)
