    if the price is not a whole lot more go for the 4 bolt main, they are much stronger. even if it is a lot more, you might want to do it anyways. i dont know about the seals.

    Well if your looking for strength I would go with the 2 bolt and convert it to splayed 4 bolt but thats just me /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif
