    If I am reading your ? the right way, the front and rear are almost the exact same, except front D60's have seals under the carrier bearings to keep crud outta the diff, rears dont because the gear oil has to run down the tubes to the wheel bearings.

    Probably no seals. The cover gasket is the same.
