    Since the differential will be out, I want to replace what I can.
    Does it have an axle seal on the differential side of the axletube, like the wheel bearing hub seal found by the wheel bearings?
    If so, where can I buy a set. The dorks at Autozone had a hard time looking up the wheel bearing seal itself, so I didn't even try with them.
    TIA.

    No, no inner seals of any kind.

    just the flat gasket/seal under the axle flange for the hub face, they make a sandwich out of the seal there

    you could be a K30 guy if you build or get a K30

    I was under the impression Wes had a super-exclusive 'K30 Guy' club...The Order of the K30. I think there is an entrace exam, not just owning or building a K30. We will have to let the High Grand Cheif of the Order of the K30 weigh in.
