HUB SEAL ?

Searched and couldn't find any info on this. Are the Hub seals absolutely necessary. I replaced the factory locking hubs with milemarker stainless and just bought new hub/bearing assemblies and just didn't want to fork over $50 a pop for the seals if not needed?

they can be since they keep moisture/ dirt out

but you don't need to change them if they look decent and seal ok

make sure you block the vacuum port from the PVH solenoid since it's no longer needed

you can't run without them unless you want to chance trash the new locking hubs and the spindle bearing on the unit bearing

it also takes a special tool to insert into the knuckle or you can make one ( google ) but be careful because the DIY pipe one doesn't set it to depth like the proper tool
