    I'm getting 5.13 gears swapped into my dana 60 front.
    I need to know where I can get the inner axle seals. It's
    the one that prevents water and mud from getting into the
    axle tube at the knuckle. I have tried to search but have
    come up empty.If anyone has a part # for them I would
    appreciated it very much.
    Thanks, David

    GM will have them, and they are of better quality and design that the parts store version.

    that seal does a better job of holding the crub IN the axle tube then holding it out
    donot use it

    He said INNER axle seal which is highly needed or gear oil will drain quickly from the carrier, as I am sure you know this.

    I really ment the seals to keep mud and water from entering
    at the knuckles.

    So if I understand correctly, he is looking for the SBK3 kits? All the seals that go on the outer stub shaft and seal it from getting water and mud into the wheel bearings?

    No it's not an OE seal, he's looking for a seal that would fit at the outer end of the axle tube. It's been a couple of years ago but a magazine published a "Homegrown How To" about a seal that coincidentally fit the tube and axle shaft, there was a NAPA part number given in the tip.
