9 inch seals.

I gave up on sealed bearings years ago and now run a 9 inch centre with Holden (local Gm) axles, tubes, bearings and brakes. Check out non c-clip Gm, Dana, Amc etc. Early swing axle M/benz have a seal that should go close, You could make a retainer out of Benz & Ford parts and use a homemade gaskrt behind it. but the other bloke is right, check out the housing first. Almost forgot, how clear is your diff breather? they generate a lot of heat so expanding air has to vent somewhere.
