    the seals are real tight when the go on, get a hammer and a block of wood. put wood on end of hub, hit with bfh. the seals make it hard to get on but it will go. try pushing up on the hub to relieve pressure frome the seal. once its seats you will know it

    Somtimes it's not just the seals. Sometimes the inner bearing gets cocked to the side and binds as it slides onto the spindle. Make sure you grease the spindle before you try to slip it on. I wouldn't pound on it too much. I have messed with one for a while before it slides on. And once it slides on you will ask yourself, why couldn't it go on that easy the first time.:doah:

    It helps if your backing plates are on the right side too.
