05 F350 Fwd front axle tube dust seal?

I'm doing my ball joint on my truck and I'm having a heck of a time finding this seal. No one seems to be able to get me a part number as any of the local auto parts stores.

I have the big seal that requires the special giant install tool, but there is a second inner seal that goes on the actual axle tube. I think it's just a dust seal, but I can seem to find a part number for it and every seal I look at is different..

Anyone know which one it is? It's the one that always breaks in half and rolls around on the axle shaft behind the universal joint. I'm trying to fix a replacement.

This is a picture I found online.. and these part numbers but it's a different looking seal..

Iirc, there is an updated seal for that. Not sure of the number, but @voodooridr , will probably know.

The following website is a nice part number listing, also.

Your picture is the old seal. Like mentioned above, there is a new seal and a new P/N. Let me see if I can find it...standby

The AC3Z-1S175A is the correct seal, Ford re-engineered the seal and it looks nothing like the original
The new seal presses into the axle tube now

Ok, so I bought one of the AC3Z-1S175A seals at a local store because I don't have time to order it.. Is it supposed to get pressed into the axle shaft? Seems like it fits loosely in the opening unless it's supposed to get rammed up inside.. The other issue is the inner opening is extremely tight on my axle shaft. I mean it's tight just going over the very end which is smaller in diameter than further up the shaft where the seal will ride.. No way the axle will spin inside this seal, is the entire seal supposed to spin with the axle?

I took a picture to show how it compared to the shaft..


Last.. I ordered the outer seal for what was supposed to fit my truck. (the vacuum seal for the hubs) Clearly as you can see in my pictures it's not the right seal. The one from my truck is much bigger around and totally different than the one I bought. Also the seal tool I bought (2005 up) is very tight going into the hub and I think it would get stuck inside if I try to install a seal with it.

Everything I bought was supposed to fit the 2005 & up F350 but seems my stuff is different. Do I not have a 2005 front axle?

That vacuum hub seal looks like one for a 99-04 not the 05/
I've never seen an Oreally dust seal in person but something looks wrong about that one

Do you mean my new one in the bag looks like the 99-04 or the old one on the axle? The O'riely seal is what cross references for the Ford OEM PN#. Is it supposed to be really tight on the shaft or is the shaft supposed to spin inside it?

The inner dust seal spins with the shaft. The metal portion remains fixed in the tube. It's a two piece design.
At least the oem one is.

The greater danger for most of us lies not in setting our aim too high and falling short; but in setting our aim too low, and achieving our mark.
