I need some assistance with leaking axle oil seals. The vehicle is a 2008 Toyota Hilux. I did some differential repairs last year and ever since then the side shaft oil seals are leaking. I replaced both sides twice already with original Toyota parts. I am told that this is a tricky install as you need to get the side shaft installed dead center in the axle housing and oil seal in order for the seal to seat properly around the axle. You can rule out a bent axle and the surface where the seal makes contact with the axle is also in good shape.
I am looking for some aftermarket seals that can take up some axial play. Cassette type seals might do the trick but I am not getting any responses from specialist manufacturers.
Looking forward to feedback! Thank for a great channel!
