    Have a leaking wheel seal on my front drive axle. Can someone help me out with a part number? Wheel bearings could also be bad. Eaton DS402, vin VR75212. The local KW dealers are crooks, so I’d rather order through someone else.

    Wheel seal SKF 47691 hand installable. Timken bearings Set 401(outer) and Set 403 (inner). If aluminum hub, hub must be heated to install cups. A complete loaded preset Conner hub for drive axle including studs is only around $270. I just picked up four of them on sale for $230 a piece.

    Those two are a bit different in dimensions mainly the width.

    47692 is wider one. 47691 was designed to give more room for ABS tone ring.
